Wow this thing is impressive. I may convert to Islam just to go see this tower in person
No matter how good these photos are, I'm sure that seeing it up close is just awesome.

Excuse my ignorance, but what does the Arabic writing say just under that clock face?

Actually all the renders look different from the real thing when it comes to color; they look somehow lighter.

this picture is from July.

but it's angle is different from most of the pictures we have seen here so far. some bridges are seen between two towers, and the last tower on the left (i am not good at names of the towers so excuse me) is visible as a whole, almost.

this shot is taken from the entrance to the tunnel that goes right infront of the Abraj towers.
