Future Look of Mecca & Madina | Saudi Arabia

Makkah is regarded as the holiest city in Islam and is home to the Kaaba, Islam's holiest site, as well as is direction of Muslim prayer. Mecca has seen tremendous expansion in size and infrastructure, home to structures such as the Abraj Al Bait, also known as the Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel, the world's third tallest building and the building with the largest amount of floor area. During this expansion, Mecca has lost some historical structures and archaeological sites, such as the Ajyad Fortress.

Today, more than 15 million Muslims visit Mecca annually, including several million during the few days of the Hajj. As a result, Mecca has become one of the most cosmopolitan and diverse cities in the Muslim world, despite the fact that non-Muslims are prohibited from entering the city. Below are pictures of a proposed construction plan of Masjid al Haraam, Makkah.

Makkah Royal Clock Tower

At the heart of the holiest Islamic city, Makkah Royal Clock Tower brings an air of modernization to the bustling historic center of Mecca. The tower was developed as a component of the King Abdulaziz Endowment Project and provides comfortable accommodations for devout Muslims that make the journey to the city every year during the Hajj period. It is conveniently located adjacent to the Grand Mosque, which can accommodate up to two million worshippers over the course of the event.

The clock tower stands in the center of a high-rise complex called Abraj Al-Bait. Six smaller high-rises surround it at heights varying and accommodate both residential and hotel uses. True to its name, four colossal clock faces are mounted near the top of the tower. These clocks hold the record for both the largest and highest in the world. At night, the clock faces are illuminated by one million LED lights that transform the tower into a green and white beacon. Writing is inscribed above each clock, with the words “God is the Greatest” on the north and south sides, while the Koran adorns the east and west sides. The spire of the tower features a spherical observation center at its base. The spire is capped with a shining mosaic gold crescent that weighs 35 metric tons. A number of cultural amenities are present in the upper levels of the tower, including a center for lunar observation and a cosmology museum.

Since a great deal of residents and guests in the tower perform prayers five times a day, innovative solutions were provided in the elevator systems that transport people in a smooth and efficient manner. Group control systems were implemented that adapt to the travel patterns of passengers, intelligently anticipating their general location and destination. Using this technology, up to 75,000 people can exit all seven buildings without issue.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MAKKAH | SAUDI ARABIA VLOG | I GOT DETAINED BY THE RELIGIOUS POLICE!

This is the most beautiful place on earth! Makkah is the holiest city in Islam, and is where millions of Muslims around the world perform their annual Hajj and Umrah pilgrimage. It is the place that houses the Kaabah, also known as the House of God; which is the direction that all Muslims face, when they pray.

In this video, we will talk about some of the facts you need to know about Makkah, as well as take you on a visual journey through this holy city, that is inaccessible to many.

Some Info on The Zam Zam:
The Zam Zam well is a miraculously generated source of water from God that sprang thousands of years ago when Abraham's (Ibrāhīm) infant son Ishmael (ʼIsmāʻīl) was left with his mother Hagar (Hājar) in the desert, where he was thirsty and kept crying. Millions of pilgrims visit the well each year while performing the Hajj or Umrah pilgrimages, in order to drink its water - Wikipedia

Ibrahim Khalil Road, Makkah Umrah 2019 |4K|

We start at the beginning of Ibrahim Khalil Road (ابراهيم الخليل) where the taxi rank and bus stands are. This is just behind the closest hotel to Masjid ul Haraam, Dar Al Tawhid Intercontinental (5 star) (

See our video of the Masjid Al Haraam:


All of the hotels behind Dar Al Tawhid are new and built in the last few years and the small road behind the hotels is called Jabal Omar so all of these three hotels are known as;
- Hilton Suites (5 star)


- Jabal Omar Hyatt Regency (5 star)


- Jabal Omar Conrad (5 star)

There is still some construction ongoing next to Jabal Omar Conrad where new hotels are being built.

Click on the link below to search for hotels in Makkah and next to Masjid Al Haram


Further down the road we come behind the Clock Tower where the main traffic going into and out of the Haraam are, which is a pedestrianised walkway where some restaurants are and also where Hotel Elaf Kinda ( is located. This area can get particularly busy during salah times as it creates a bottle-neck traffic and the authorities close this walkway for safety reason during busier periods.


We have stayed in another hotel in the Clock Tower at the Pullman Zamzam ( see the video on the below link:


As we walk further down we get closer to all of the cheaper restaurants where they sell Pakistani and Bangladeshi cuisines - these restaurants are mostly found in the alleyways - these are shown in the video.

At the middle of the road is a hotel which I would recommend as it is good value for money but would not recommend for elderly or families with children as the walk can be 15 minutes each way to the haram, see my below video for the full walk from the hotel:



Further down (not shown in video) is a junction that leads to the poorer neighbourhood of Misfalah, this is an area that has a lot of cheap restaurants and hotels where the some hujjaj stay.

Please ask if you have any questions. All of our videos have no nasheed or additional sounds as we would like to give you the full experience of listening to the sounds of the locations.
