I really liked all of the recent pictures that were posted in these last few days, especially the ones by Youssef. The pictures really helped me in making a diagram of the tower.
Here is the diagram of the Mecca Royal Clock Tower (sooner or later ill make the rest of the complex)

well, they don't normally "check". but if they want then they can check by asking few things which normally only Muslims would know, like the Shahadah, or to read Surat al Fathihah.
they only check randomly, if you are from a non-muslim country and have a name not familiar in the Muslim world, you might need to provide a certificate from an Islamic Center that you are a Muslim, if that's not stated in your Passport.
