Makkah Clock Royal Tower

World’s largest clock tower, which is also a hotel, is going to be built and launched in the Islamic holy city of Makkah. 43 meters in diameter, compared to the 7 meters London Big Ben clock, and rising 577 meters above the ground, making it only second tallest building in the world.

The clock as announced holds extreme amount of engineering and challenges that is worth being admired. reports say this project will open in mid 2010, but I can’t tell for sure yet.
