I really dislike the glittering effect seen in the second half of the video. This tower has often been accused of looking like a Las Vegas casino, and with that light effect on it certainly does.

impressive clocktower. i hope this complex will be accompanied by more supertals in the near future. those old houses near the mosque don’t seem so valuable, so they could be demolished. are there any plans to make the mosque itself bigger? it would be cool if they construct so towering minarets, like the one in casablanca

The mosque is being expanded as we speak.

Here's an image taken from the Holy Mosque Expansion's official thread:

I used to like the project a lot more before the spire and the whole lighting fiasco.

Me too, I don't understand this choice for Makkah.

And the remains of that small ugly tower have been buried beneath a white marble floor.

Just witnessed a lightning test with banner on for the first time. This not-carryin-my-camera-with-me-all-the-time thing has started to annoy me :/
