The Royal Mecca Clock Tower is expected to be the world's second tallest building and the largest clock tower. Standing at a whopping 1,970 ft tall, it will be over SIX TIMES taller than the former title-holder and most recognizable clock, Big Ben in London. The clock faces on each of its four sides will also have a diameter of 151 ft, which is also a full 128 ft wider than Big Ben.

Upon completion, the clock will also boast 2 million LED lights on the clock faces and 21,000 green and white lights that will flash throughout each day to signal the Islamic call to prayer. Muslims are hoping that their clock tower will allow for the establishment of a new world timing standard or at least an alternative to Greenwich Mean Time in the UK.
