Millions of people visit it every year but not many have seen it in the way that this Saudi photographer has captured it.
Mohammed Al Otaibi has been photographing Masjid Al Haram for quite some time now and his Instagram is filled with hundreds of photos of the mosque. Some are the kind that you regularly see elsewhere but the majority are the kinds that are not found anywhere else. Apparently he shoots the photos from his iPhone but they look no less than a high-end DSLR. See them for yourself.

They deserve a big applause for help maintaining the mosque clean despite the millions that visit it.

The beautiful architecture and design of the mosque is what many miss out on.
Here is another example of it.

He seems to enjoy black and white a lot.
Just wow on this one.
