Looks like Tokyo Sky Tree beat Mecca Tower to the 600 m mark. I wonder which one will top out first?

there is water coming out near the kaaba from underground for more than 6,000 years called zamzam water, but today more water is pumped from the coast city of jeddah i guess. water is not a problem in saudi in general

I'm already seeing that look like a fake "mosque-esque" building. Its ugly building, sorry its my opinion. I personally prefer modern buildings like Burj Khalifa, ther's an islamic essence in this building without being corny.

Bye

i love the comparison with big ben (well not so big ben) not only 6x taller but 10x wider aswell , this monster must be the widest thing at such a vast height .
