Tunnels To Be Constructed To Connect Holy Sites And Grand Mosque In Makkah

The Makkah Region Development Authority has approved plans and studies to build service tunnels linking Arafat and Jamaraat in Mina via Muzdalifa, and tunnels linking Jamarat with the courtyard of Makkah.
The plan also include the construction of residential towers on the mountain slope of Mina in a way not violating the sanctity of Holy site. A total of six towers have already been constructed in Mina and these hace the capacity of accomodating around 12,000 pilgrims. The studies also recommended developing the tents in Arafaat and making more facilities and arrangements for the stay of pilgrims in Muzdalifa. There are also plans for boosting means of transportation between Holy Sites and Grand Mosque.
