Actually, the white is the marble. You can see the pilgrims around the Kabah.

yeah, dude. its not meant to make the developers money. It does have importance, given the huge number of pilgrims, and lack of space in the city. But I do agree with you in that I feel its way to imposing. Seriously...When I go there I want to pay attention on praying and the actual Kabaa, not drooling over the towering skyscraper lol

This is the only major tower currently underconsttruction which is a requirement, not a status symbol. millions of people make their pilgrimages here every year, and it is about as small as a city can get. Without building tall people will not be able to fit in mecca, it is essential to mecca that they can support the growing number of pilgrimages. If you take the quote above and post it on any thread in construction section its fine, yet here is the one place where it is not a waste of time or money.

They should build a second Mecca somewhere in the suburbs.
