I was so happy to get accomodated in Burj Zam-Zam during Hajj of 2008
It's so nice, traditional and modern.
Insallah I will come back with pictures.

Comparing my photo (taken in 18th, August, 2010) with Asyiqulhurr's (taken two days later) you can see that the face of the clock on this side is changed and almost completedÖ Plus, while walking near the construction area, I have seen some trucks carrying large pieces of marble to the projectÖ
