Ever wondered how the Kaaba looked inside

Posted on the March 6th, 2009 under Islam and Muslims by Tohir

From an email I received recently, I decided to lookup some more information:


This what we usually get to see when the King of Saudi Arabia visits the Kaaba in Makkah


A drawing of the layout of the Kaaba


Plan and Structure


Photo of Inside the Kaaba. Interior matches the first photo

Some details of the interior the Kaaba:

  • There are three pillars inside
  • There is a small table on the side to put items like perfume and incense burners.
  • There are two lantern-type lamps hanging from a cross beam near the ceiling
  • There are no electric lights inside
  • The interior walls are clad with marble half-way to the roof.
  • The entire floor is of marble except for a small portion which is called “Rukhamat Humra”.
  • Tablets with Qur’anic inscriptions are inset in the marble.
  • The top part of the walls is covered with a green cloth decorated with gold embroidered Qur’anic verses.
  • There are no windows inside
  • There is only one door
  • The space can accommodate about 50 people

Apparently, there’s also a video now available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAeR1U0z5io
