MeccaSaudi Arabia plans to create a smart city near Mecca that will offer tailor-made services for pilgrims, Arab News reported.

The new full-fledged pilgrim city to be established along the Jeddah-Mecca Expressway will be named after Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, said Haj Minister Bandar Hajjar, and be called King Abdullah Pilgrims City.

“It will be a smart city equipped with the most advanced facilities and systems,” he told Mecca Governor Prince Mishaal bin Abdullah while giving a presentation on the project.

Hajjar said the city would be designed to become an outstanding landmark in Mecca, adding that it would provide all services required by pilgrims coming for Haj and Umrah.

“All residential and administrative services will be made available for pilgrims in the city, which will be linked with the Grand Mosque and the center of Mecca with a public transport system,” he added.

“This city was planned to reduce congestion in areas around the Grand Mosque,” the minister said. The city will have government department offices, residential buildings, health facilities, shopping centers, exhibitions centers, mosques and a Haj museum.

The city will house all the facilities and departments related with the activities of the ministry in a single site. This will be a sustainable city with several unique features, including facilities for purification of water, using solar energy, basement parking lots, isolated thermal system, central air-conditioning and covered pedestrian paths. The city will also have service offices and stations for metro and buses, housing for pilgrims, centers for civil defense, police, passports department and airline offices.
