I find this tower too much, and rather ugly, I don't understand why Saoudia build something like it just beside the Masjid al-Haram. It's almost like if Catholique build a supertall beside Saint Peter's basilica.

She is probably oppresed and want to be blown off the edge...Anyway those are not exactly swastikas.

Looks like an amazing documentary. Would like to see the whole film once it's released. Thanks for linking that.

They are swastikas, there is nothing wrong with swastikas. If you go to China or Korea you will see them everywhere.

Swastikas have been around for thousands of years and occur in pretty much all religions. They symbolize goodness and luck.

It's so stupid spending all that money to build something based on a man who lived in the past who claimed god gave him messages.

So one mans blatant lying or schizophrenia has led to this stupid tower being built, crazy how things turn out.

This has to be a fake picture, firstly why would a girl in her shorts be allowed in Makkah? also how would she go up there and sit in a dangerous place like that?
