Where about 2 million people perform Hajj and visit the Holy places in Makkah and al-Madina. Pilgrimage is considered one of the largest event in the world. The increase in the pilgrims' number does not follow with an increase in the accommodation and built environment needs. As a result, pilgrims find themselves in a built environment which is not designed according to their satisfaction level. The specific core proposition of this study is to analyse the results of pilgrims' satisfaction with all aspect of their existing accommodation as a micro built environment, as well as with their neighbourhood and the city of al-Madina as a macro level of the built environment.
