Spa, this is going to come to you as a suprise, but the city of Mecca, where the Kabah is located, all non-Muslims are not allowed in the city of Mecca, let alone near the Kabah. Even in Saudi Arabia the highway signs say Mecca is for Muslim pilgrimage only and non-Muslims are directed to take take another road. This most "sacred place on earth" has no church, synagogue, or temple allowed, simply because only Muslims are allowed to come to there to worship.
