Development of Other Religious Sites

An all-encompassing master plan for the development of the myriad of holy sites in the Kingdom has been charted by the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs. The plan effectively calls for the wholesale transformation and modernization of services in Mina, Muzdalifah and Arafat in the coming decade. The development plan will naturally aim to retain the traditional characteristics of the holy sites, as has been accomplished to great effect at the Mosques in the two Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah.
