    Hasan, that’s quite a photo.. where were all the people??

      Assalam aleikum,

      if you look closely at the right of the photo, you can see the courtyard, or the tawaf area, and it looks like the photo was taken at night, I am guessing around 2-3 am, Allahualim. Actually if you open the picture up in flickr and zoom in and look at the clock, it says 2.47 am. The Haram in Makkah is open 24/7, and been like that for a long time. So that would make it open to the public, nonstop for hundreds of years, allahualim.

      Br. Habeeb has got it right! It was about 2:30 am on my last day in Makkah, so 2 of my friends and I snuck our cameras into the Haram and took lots of pictures.

      At night most people are concentrated around the Kabah (duh) and also near Safa and Marwah, so we went to the area opposite that to take pictures. Less guards = less chances of being yelled at.
