But Mecca is also now being compared to Manhattan with the pace of high-rise buildings that are dotting the skyline.

Luxury hotels are being built by the local authority to provide accommodation for the rich visitors that come to the city.



Name TWO "high-rise" buildings in Makkah

Ah. I really don't like this building, so ugly. Also it is designed with with religion in mind, it's kind of like building the pyramids but in 2011 a complete waste of time.

Time to stop being irrational and stop believing in stupid superstitions. It is scary to think that in the Middle East and the USA monuments to superstition are still being built.

^ I totally agree to this, but I don't want to see another discussion about religion happening here. So please: Don't discuss such issues here, thanks. You can do so in any skybar you like.

Buildings dedicated to "superstition" have been the most beautiful and magnificent historically (with the obvious exception of this one lol). So kudos to whoever is building more of them

I'm pretty sure Las Vegas wasn't there when Mecca had centuries of being founded. Yes some casinos of Las Vegas look arabian.

In fact, the buildings in Las Vegas have the look of being from many places all over the world. And comparing this genuine construction achievement with an imitation from Las Vegas is insulting.
