That set of photos gave me the exact same sentiment. Before, people worshipped underneath a full sky, nothing between them and a view of the heavens, now this monstrosity is butting into everything in one whole direction.

Why on earth!!!

I agree. Belongs to such a location not a modest building? There are pilgrims all over the world, some have to work hard to pay for the trip. For this people, this building is very dominant. this location would have been better to build lighter and transparent building.

Muslims are not able to be ridiculised. Get over it buddy, it's just a joke. It's not that because it's a holy site for muslims, nobody can make jokes about it...

The Soudi Govt. should make more taller highrises if the soil permits it to do so - what with so many pilgrims visiting it - I believe this will be one of the way to provide affordable and good accommodation to her visitors.
