Go On A Pilgrimage To Makkah

Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel or Abraj Al-Bait Towers is a part of a set of buildings in a complex of buildings in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, owned by the government of Saudi Arabia. They are a part of the effort of the King in modernizing the city to facilitate annual pilgrimage in Mecca. The complex has an elegant five-star hotel to help accommodate some of the pilgrims. The building holding the central place in the complex hosts the largest clock in the world. This is the third tallest building in the world, but it certainly is the tallest building in Saudi Arabia. It ranks fourth when it comes to ranking freestanding structures in the world.

The complex of buildings or the Abraj Al-Bait Towers has a mall spreading over five floors, the Abraj Al-Bait Mall. There are residential towers in the building complex with the facility of commuting via helicopters. Business class elite can organize conferences involving over 10,000 people in the conference center. The sides of the tower containing the hotel have a clock on each side. The resident who chooses to live at the top of the hotel lives at a height of 450 meters or 1,480 feet. The clock faces are squares with 43 meters of length. The clocks maintain a height of 530 meters above the ground. An Islamic Museum and a Lunar Observation Centre are also housed in the tower.

The tower stands on the spot where the Ayjad Fortress once stood. This was a monument built during the Ottoman rule over the region. Quite a bit of controversy was ignited with the Turks when the remains of the Ottoman dynasty were destroyed in 2002.
