Saudi Arabia completes periodic maintenance of the Holy Kaaba.

Ahead of Eid Al-Adha, Saudi Arabia has completed the maintenance of the Holy Kaaba, ordered by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in June 2019, ahead of schedule.

According to a report by Saudi Gazette , the department of the kingdom's Ministry of Finance that looks after the management of projects oversaw the maintenance work on the Kaaba.

The scope of maintenance works for the structure, draped in a silk and cotton veil, included covering its roof with marble, fixing the water isolation valves, and treating wood works on the roof and the columns.

Additionally, the Kaaba's doors were repaired, along with the facility to drain rainwater from its roof, in accordance with international standards using latest technology.

Commenting on the maintenance work, Saudi Arabia's Minister of Finance, Mohammed Al-Jadaan, said: "The periodic maintenance of the Kaaba was within the efforts of the Saudi government to provide pilgrims with the best of services.

"The maintenance works took care of all minute details and was carried out [using] the most modern technology, according to the instructions of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques."
