are you suggesting making 600 m high manaraat?

By the way manaraat is a plural word, how come you are adding s to it?

Not 600m - it will look odd....according to what i remember they are increasing height of new minaarets at MASAA to 179m or 189m from the current 89m i think - someone correct me with the proper figures....

Minaaret = singular
Manaaraat = plural
Minaarets = ANGLICIZED plural so english speakers can easliy understand....

anyway...anything will go here....as it is an informal forum

I really like the way they have kept old manaraats in the middle with old lighting at Prophet Mosque. I hope they will remain like that.

Yup, that's why I don't mind them being there, kind of gives you a good Idea of the border of the previous expansion.

I Know the architect of the new Expansion
It is the Egyptian branch of Dar Al-Handasa (Sha'er and parteners) دار الهندسة -شاعر ومشاركوه -مكتب القاهرة
This firm was established in 1956 in Bierut by Lebanese architect Dr Kamal Al-Sha'er كمال الشاعر . Now they had many branches in Lebanon,KSA,Egypt,Turkey and another Gulf countries. One of my collegues is working in the design team of Haram Expansion

Doesn't seem to factor in the expansion currently being done on the Safa wal Marwa part. Looks interesting though.
