Guys, guess who is watching?



Gerald is!

Amazing work Gerald, does anybody (besides you) make such panoramas in the world? You should make this hobby as your new business . And also, I would like to see some "making of" video footage of making such panorama. It seems to be a lot of work (and time) with this...

There are some mistakes:

The highest mosque is in fact a prayer room at Level 154 in the Chairman suite. It is also the highest in a building, I bet you can find mosque at a higher altitude in the mountains of Pakistan.

The elevator is the world fastest double cab at 10 or 12,5 meter per second (not sure anymore), Taipei 101 still got the overall fastest (the symbolic 1010 meter per minute).

Hi isic.

I received info from during the height ratification process that shows the highest prayer room on level 160 - it is more than credible.
I do agree they should have worded it the highest mosque in the world, in a building.
