These pictures were taken in Ramadan by Saudi government officials while on aerial patrol of Makkah (Kaaba). The view of the largest clock tower in the world and its size in relation to Kaaba can be seen in the picture. Haram expansion to accommodate additional 2 million pilgrims is evident by the construction lights on the right of the picture. Also, see the articles on the Story of the building of Kaabah in Makkah Al-Mukarramah and Haram Mosque Expansion in Makkah.
