Curious change in Mecca, irrigating these dry mountains and growing some forests there could really make a nice improvement in this dusty city .

Has the clock tower a name like London's "Big Ben"? I'm not a muslim, but can I start a suggestion sub-topic in this thread about that? I suggest: "Big Khadijah" (طويل القامة خديجة <- is that correct?), Khadijah was the #1 wife of Mohammed.

No we don't accept that choice!

we call it simply ''Makkah Clock'' ...the best choice

That's an ugly concrete building in the foreground, another new hotel?

What a huge building :O

But for me at least... is kind of weird, I mean its like a mix between the Big Ben in London with some hotel from Las Vegas, NV. In a huge scale...

Anyway, the important thing is that the people of La Mecca, likes this building (?) .

I have to keep my opinion about this building, it has even become more ugly now that it is almost finished. At least I am not alowed to ever see it in person because I don't believe in a book written in a language that nobody understands.
