Didn't see a thread about the Hajj this year. I figured it was deserving of one.

According to the state-operated statistical authority, about 2.35 million pilgrims have made it this year to perform the rituals.

Over 3 million pilgrims used to perform Hajj about a decade go. That has since been shrunk down due to all the projects going on in and around Makkah to accommodate larger numbers. The ongoing projects are now being completed, so we'll see an expansion in the number of pilgrims over the coming few years; they want to reach 5 million pilgrims at steady state.

Some images from this year's Hajj:
