Nice to see that they bring everything up in components because otherwise it is too big.

Will be visiting this monstrosity in two days. Anxious to see if it'll have any effect on my opinion on the project!

"wow just wow! When its time to pray everything stops and praying starts even in the malls. It looks like the mall turned into a mosque. " What would happen to a moslem who decided not to stop and prey when everybody else does, and just carried on about his business?

I am a Muslim and have been to Mecca and i coudnt agree more with you. This monstrosity should have never been built in the holy city. Newayz the dumbass Saudis have already destroyed almost all the significant historical places in both the holy cities of Mecca & Medina. So it aint anything new. The irony is that the so-called Saudi king calls himself as the "Guardian of the 2 holy cities" . I dont know what the heck is he guarding though.

+1 (although i havent been to makkah yet).
I agree that it was needed, but could they not have built it in Jeddah for example and than build a high speed rail line or something like that?
