It's amazing in that shot how sparsely populated the city looks in some areas! Another few years with more developments it's going to look mind-blowing!

Is Mecca a fast growing city in terms of population? Or is it pretty stagnant?

its the oldest city in the world,, alot of pilgrims from poor areas stay illegally in makkah after hajj season... they end up living the same style they come from,,, which bothering because thier buildings are disorganised.. but all of this is changing.. unlike before, they are all sent back home...
