One million hajjis pass through the King Abdul Aziz International Airport over a one-month period annually for the Muslim ritual journey to Mecca. SOM successfully met the unique need for a passenger terminal that would not only be able to accommodate droves of pilgrims, but also could accommodate pilgrims for up to 36 hours with the modern and efficient design of the Hajj Terminal, which is considered to be a "landmark of 20th century architecture and engineering."
