King Fahd's Expansion of The Holy Mosques of Makkah and Madinah


Of all the projects undertaken by Saudi Arabia during the reign of King Fahd, the expansion of the Holy Mosques in the Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah stands apart as central to the King's and the Kingdom's purpose. As Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Fahd has spared no effort and no expense in developing the Two Holy Mosques to accommodate in safety the vast numbers of pilgrims who visit the Kingdom each year, while at the same time taking great care to ensure that the expansion is entirely consistent with the architectural design of the existing structures.
