These are pictures of the holy place where all Muslims must go to at least once in their lives in obedience to the order of Allah in the Quran:

"96. Verily, the first House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Baca (Mecca), full of blessing, and a guidance for Al-'Alamin (the mankind and jinns).

97. In it are manifest signs, (for example) the worship place of Abraham; and whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj to the House is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, for those who can afford doing it; and whoever disbelieves, then Allah stands not in need of any of the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns)." (Chapter 3, verses 96-97)

Its one of the greatest miracles that Allah gave to His Prophet Muhammad that after 14 centuries of his death, over 2,500,000 people from all corners of the globe continue to come each year to reply the call of Allah for Hajj (the Journey to the House in Mecca).
