I like to go there but I think non-Muslims are not allowed to get that close to their sacred place...

Wow! amazing pictures!
I must admit I was more that skeptical that this building would look nice, but actually it does, and it seems to fit not too bad within its environment.
Nice piece of architecture finally!
It's a bit off-topic, but If I understood well only muslims are allowed in Meccah? Is that rule still applied or is there exceptions? We'll be waiting for pictures once it's finished then :-)

incredible. looks like still 450m high (top of clock section). with core maybe above 460m?
we need photos further away not underneath to see current height. its too tall underneath it.

There must be another part to add on top of the hands of the clock. White hands would be almost invisible at a distance.

Maybe they are planning to have a cover for it I remember previously there were images of the black hands with mosaics etc etc.

Maybe the white ones are temporary, these are pics from the company "Premier Composite Technologies" that prepared the handles. And as seen in the video posted by abumuhannadh, these were also shipped to UAE to be shipped later to Makkah.

This is the exact height of Rawabi when it is done. CULWULLA, if you can, please compare the heights as there is no official information about it. I'll post more information on the Saudi forum soon.

I still think that last plan is absolute horrible. It has no relations to the city at all.... Look at that huge, no, lets say freaking enormous blank wall at the base that is blocking everything. It says BANG in your face!, to the people who live next to it.

Yes you're probably right.
