i have a mixed feeling about that clock tower thingy....it is tooooo close to Masjidil Haram. We come to Makkah to worship not to shop....I would rather shop at the stalls. Well if they really want to cater the people of Makkah to shop...put it somewhere else...

it's a HOTEL , and hotels do have shopping malls. but a shopping mall is only secondary. it's ok to hate it being too close anyway.
