directly behind this monster there are about 20 skyscrapers planned in one big complex, tallest about 300m. they will be directly across the street so this whole thing will look like one architectural mountain <3

it's an extension for the kaaba entrance. not tall but massive. it's to improve the flow of muslims to and away from the kaaba. at least that's what i think it's for, saw only few videos and pictures.

this video should be helpful
