I don't think statues are allowed in wahabitism? A few pyramids might do it though.

No, It is still the same. About renders, If I got anyone for sure I will post it here inshallah (God willing).

Again, Minarets look like domes and small not big. I am just repeating to stop stretching of one's imagnation lol.

They are not huge, Just small ones but sure they are big enough to be seen from ground floor of the project inshallah (God willing).

Already there is a stepped small building (Pyramid) consists of 3 floors will be on the podium between the front towers (Al-Safa & Al-Marwa) inshallah (God willing) unless if they changed the design again.

I think the style of the interiors is more of European in influence than Islamic. You could see the baroque mouldings and the Louis XV style chairs, more than the Islamic geometric patterns.

Nice picture, Thank you Saudi_Guy.

By the way the time of installation of the clock has been decided to be a first quarter of 2009 inshallah (God Willing).

I still hate the clock. Someone with power over this building should come to this forum and read the negative opinions about the clock.
