Makkah Clock Tower, the second tallest tower in the world, is to open for tourists after Haj 2014, according to officials. The gigantic Makkah Clock project was constructed on top of Tower No. 5 of the King Abdul Aziz Endowment Project, which consists of seven towers. The tower includes hotels on which the clock is situated. “A large number of visitors of different nationalities will be allowed to visit the tower to get a close look at the interior of the Clock Tower,” an official told Arab News. “There will be tickets to visit the tower. This procedure will be announced after this year’s Haj season,” said the official. “The Clock Tower revived our business during the last three years,” said Abbas Subhi, marketing manager at a hotel located in the Clock Tower. “Most of visitors come only to stay in our roof to enjoy the panoramic view of the Grand Mosque. The Clock Tower supports tourism,” he told Arab News.
