Memories of hajj by Martin Lings is a documentary that takes you to a hajj in distant 1948. That was the first time electric light was introduced in Mecca and Medina, and in the city of Mecca there was no building that was higher than Kabah. Hajjis were coming to hajj via ships, buses, on foot ... Through exclusive, black-and-white shots, see parts of Mecca that almost no longer exists today.
