Saudi Arabia has developed a new project enabling it to receive and accommodate 30 million pilgrims during Hajj and Umrah.

 

The project is aimed at adding extensions to the surrounding of the Kaaba, renovating electricity and water lines as well as medical facilities, increasing the number of hotels, and enlarging the area of the airport in Jeddah.

 

It is worth noting that Saudi Arabia currently has the capacity to receive 5 millions pilgrims during Hajj and 2 million during Umrah.
