Note: There is another development project of the holy mosque called "mataf development" which will start also inshallah after hajj to increase the area of mataf and the uthmani domes will be removed. (its to make the part around the black kaa'ba a full circle)

the is the last render, as far as i know, more here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...566372&page=26
I don't think this is what they are building, the construction area looks more circular to me.

Man that video was fantastic! I sure hope that second design never sees the light of day, it looks like crap compared to the video. Five million people at the same time? Think of the transportation nightmare that would create!!

And how exactly would they lift a clock weighting like 100 tons 450 meters above the ground?
