The green white combination certainly fits best, only white would be too "shiny". Thanks all for the picture contribution, only annoying are these muslim/ non-muslim conversation every second page with close-minded individuals on both sides.

What the...?
Abraj al bait is indeed bigger and more modern (though it's design is actually pretty retro...) but still it will NEVER look better than Big Ben. A kitschy, over the top copy never looks better than the genuine original.

Abraj al bait is is the epitome of bad taste for me...

sorry..

The crescent I found it too flashy. I don't know what it looks like in real. But on the pic I don't like the ''fluo'' green color. For me it don't fit in Makkah at all.
