A blue colour would indicate the men’s rooms and pink for the women’s.

As part of the new developments, Zain Al-Abdeen said the third floor of the Jamrat facility would be connected to Al-Muaisim area near Mina and the Aziziyah district in Makkah would be linked to the second floor of the facility. “The current slaughterhouse for cows and camels in Mina will be shifted to Al-Muaisim which will be linked by a road to Al-Sharaie district in Makkah,” he said.The undersecretary said there are also projects to facilitate arrival to the train stations at the holy sites.
