It's very hard for me to believe this building is above the 600 meters.

just scaled the photos and the new top section is about 12.5m high, so current height is approx 572m.

Holy Crap !
Not only is this complex huge & tall,
but the level of detail is incredibly beautiful.
(although some might say a little bit too detailed)

Usually Islamic Architecture is highly and imho beautifully detailed. There are worldwide many very beautiful examples of that.

So this impressive building having these details is just following that pattern and long running tradition.
