Kufi Squares in Makkah
The Clock Tower in Makkah is nearing final completion.
It is at the crown of the Abraj Al Bait towers
There are Kufi Squares in the panels besides the front clock face.
One is a square on the bottom and a long elongated rectangle on top.
From the Haram as you tawaf, the kufi squares are hardly noticeable.
However upon closer inspection you can clearly make out the Kufi squares.
The diameter of the clock face is about 43m making these probably the largest Kufi Square in the world.
