i understand that the architects wanted to create fabulous, representative building in such holy for muslims land, but actually they've exceeded the mission - it looks as a mixture of big ben and moscow state university with some muslim pieces. as for me, it's tasteless
i wanted better design for 2nd tallest building in the world

I think he is referring to the crescent moon on the very top of the tower. I am also wondering when is the project scheduled to be finished.

Seriously, counting posts and crying about it isn't going to help... Some of you Muslims keep freaking out on people and it's annoying!
When is this structure due to be completed? Can we get some inside pictures? Height, please!

At first I imagined a helicopter would put it in place because I thought there would be no way the cranes could reach high enough to install the cresent, but now I see they could.
