It is situated at the center of a 4 km long boulevard, King Abdul Aziz Road, that links Makkah’s third ring road to the first ring road. The Mosque’s elements are set on three architectural scales.

The 120 meter high minarets show the way and path toward the Haram; The double-shell cupola offers a 65 meter-high set view on the surroundings; the 156 m by 156 m platform serves as a link between the project’s scales.

A convention center is built beneath the Mosque, and is dedicated to the diffusion of religious science.
