Mecca Things to Do: 51 reviews and 68 photos
This is by far the largest mosque in the world and as far as I know the largest religious place of worship.
There are approximately 2.5 million muslims in the days of Hajj alone who go and visit the holy site.
Apart from the obvious prayers and rituals. It would take you a good few days just to go around the whole structure and admire the intrciate and beautiful Mosque. The whole place is adorned in expensive marble, shipped in from Italy, Spain, Greece etc. There are many carvings, designs and Calligraphy to be found all around the mosque area.
Makkah has the worlds largest Air conditioning system as well as the largest P.A amplifier system.
Note the impressive architecture of the gate and minarets. There are well over 50 entrances to the Kaabah Mosque. About 7 are grand entrances like in the picture.
Directions: Makkah , Central.
