I know, but that was the START, few moments later, the whole upper part of the clock tower was literally lost in the clouds, all I could see was a faint green shade in the clouds

If this development was built further back it would still have the views but wouldn't detract from the Kaaba.

Anyone know when we are to expect the half moon spire to be errected on top of the hotel? I think the building will look the part once that is complete.

Although i am not religious in the slightest i find Mecca and this development really interesting! Respect.

I'm an "ordinary or common" guy in Makkah and I TOTALLY approve, and the majority approves it too.
