Someone with more knowledge of metro-Makkah chime in here, but those distances suggest that non-Muslims will be able to see this tower from a distance without having to enter Makkah.

Its clock will determine the Islamic Mean Time, Mean Time away from the meridian of Greenwich, imposed by the West.
I tried hard to work out what that meant, but gave up. Can anyone help?

Nice to know that the evil west is still trusted to build this glorious islamic time machine though. Thanks for the business chaps!

Still a bit of work to do on one of the Towers, and I don't see a Crane there to lift up the pieces.

personally i think,the other towers in this complex ruin the scale of the largest tower,it seems to be 300 or so meters from most angles,not 601,

Because of its huge width, this tower doesn't really look that tall. But I guess you'd have to see in in real life to understand the true size!
