This is where I ended up after I was caught at floor#17/18 of Fairmont Hotel. It will be the entrance to King Abdul Aziz Tunnel which BTW is still there. When you enter in the place shown above, you see the tunnel in front of you.

Thank You. My plan was to shoot just the clock tower from the outside in daytime, but due to traffic jam I got there very late, and going inside was just a coincidence

1972 feet of pure ugly. Even accounting for differing cultural standards of beauty, I can't imagine the majority of Saudis consider this attrocious hodge podge to be attractive.

This structure is best viewed from any point far enough away that the curvature of the earth hides it.

You, sir, are very narrow-minded if you cannot imagine others liking this project.

I said I can't imagine a majority of Saudis think this thing is attractive. I may be more optimistic about the people's taste than you are though.
