Projects at the Holy Places of Arafat and Mina
Riyadh, 18 February 2001
In line with the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing implemented this year a number of new projects at the Holy Places of Arafat and Mina, at a total cost of more than SR 700 million.

These new projects aim at enabling pilgrims to perform their rituals with ease and comfort. The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Public Works and Housing, Dr. Habib Mustafa Zein Al-Abdeen, said that the projects included the third and final phase of the fireproof tents in Mina and other supporting projects.

Dr Zein Al-Abdeen explained that the third phase of the Developed Tents Project, implemented on an area of 300,000 square meters, is capable of accommodating 120,000 pilgrims.

He noted that tents have been provided with all required facilities.

“By implementing the third phase of the project, Mina and some parts of Muzdalifa, have become covered with advanced tents on an area of more than 2.5 million square meters, capable of accommodating more than 1.6 million pilgrims,” he added.
