If I am correctly informed, "Makkah Time" is 2h 39m 18.3 s ahead of GMT, which differs slightly more as 20m with the current time zone observed by KSA.

Are you kidding me? Why exactly 2h 39m and 18.3seconds? That just doesn't make sense.

Well since Makkah is a religious city, people tend to pray more than shopping, even i only shop in Makkah when there is a big gap between prayer times... and the Mall's first floor is also used for prayer during Crowded timings of the year thats why the tiles are lines.

It helps when calculating exact prayer timings, even though for example Doha Riyadh and Makkah all are on the same time zone, prayer timings differ.
