The beautiful Kaa'ba on a postcard

A gorgeous postcard image of the Kaa'ba at Mecca, as it looked in the early 1900s. The extensive petro-dollar modernization being carried out since the last few decades in and around the Kaa'ba has robbed Islam of its beautiful heritage and ruined the original look of the surroundings. If only the human heart had enough humility and decency to at least leave some of the Holy sites alone that are so loaded with history and overwhelm our hearts.
