for the visitors. the number of muslims visiting this mosque is increasing drastically. hence we need a renovation to increase the size and build more hotels.

I heard only muslims can visit the city. In reality is it true that anyone else, religious or not, can not see this great building?

I believe you can still see the Al Bait tower from the surrounding hills/mountains outside Mecca so if you had binoculars or a telescope, you'd at least get a live view, even if you were non-muslim.
