The spire crane has been lowered to complete the decoration of the spire. But that crane still has a lot of things to lift. I don't think its going away soon.

A request to Youssef1 and asyiqul^huur and any other PROFESSIONAL photographer out there. I REALLY REALLY REALLY need a CRYSTAL CLEAR picture of the base of the clock tower (right above the mall roof).
I'll be really really really really really thankful to the photographer. *He said desparately*

Sorry I didn't know what translation you want exactly...

I suggest for title, to always put ''Makkah''

and do a serie of ''Makkah Clock Tower'', like for the 3 you did;

- Makkah Clock Tower: Crescent installation
- Makkah Clock Tower: Fog cloud
- Makkah Clock Tower: Minaret illuminated or lit, or light, or lighting...sorry I'm french, don't know what is better in english

So your last video is ''beautiful''!

the english name is mecca though, so everyone knows what city is meant that should stay the title, we also would write cologne instead of Köln as a title, because its an english forum

There is many place named ''Mecca'' in USA. Like: Mecca city in Indiana. Mecca(CDP) in California, Mecca coffee (bar), etc...

So ''Makkah'' written this way is only in Saudi.

It has nothing to do with the way it's pronounced. It's about speaking English properly.

@Roukaya, those cities were named after Mecca. You can also find a lot of Beiruts, Baghdads, and Cairos in the US as well.
