Non muslims are not allowed to enter Mecca under Saudi law.

When it is completed, it will be the 2nd, after Burj Khalifa. It will be 5th after Burj Khalifa, India Tower, PingAn, and Shanghai Tower once they are all completed.

Why is it that the thread title says "Endowment" btw?

Is the building donated by the mighty Abdullah himself or what?

I know this isn't the place to ask, but it always puzzled me how they keep non-Muslims away? Is there some kind of certificate that exists?

I've been trolling this thread for quite some time, and the speed of the construction seems unreal! That observation deck will be the highest in the world won't it?

it is called Endowment because all the money from it will go to the two holy mosques in Makkah and Madinah.

a certificate that confirms that you are muslim will suffice. but they don't check everyone, just randomly.

and yes, that observation deck will be highest.

i always thought there was like an ancient wall around the city and like toll booths to get into the city and check for non muslims, sorry for slightly off topic. and also can the top of this be seen from outside of the muslim only area? and one last thing, is there going to be an observation deck inside the spire area, above the clock

There are hills around Mecca, you could probably find one in the free-for-all area and see this building with binoculars, if you were so inclined.
