Very priceless!

I have others stunning pics to come from these rides!

BTW, I went to your fb page, I think you should start a page for the Holy Mosque. There is a lot of pics, updates to come.

Any idea on when will the golden stripes thingies that connect the spire's base with the tower's top-roof be installed? I think they would make the tower look much more coherent.

Thanks for suggestion. But it was hard wrk gathering 1780 people on one page. So I guess I'll keep one only. Besides I need something to post after Clock Tower is completed
I'll check the missing pics
edit: The two pics are present in "The King Abdullah Gate 2" album. You must've missed them.

I think you're talking about the silver stripes, they're already there. Check Youssef's masterpiece.

Don't know...inshallah soon wait&see

there is also the golden design on the blue glass missing as we can see on this render






Lunar Center

Recent pics of the Lunar Center (blue globe)

Maybe they will cover those stripes with gold parts. There is space between glass and stipes










In panoramio
Thanks Youssef, Great update!

Yeah that's what I was talking about; the golden stripes that extend from the bottom of the spire/minaret and pass by the lunar center reaching the tower's rooftop. also the area right under the globe/lunar center still hasn't been covered by glass.

these two additions would make the tower look a little bit less disjointed. hopefully, they'll be installed soon.
