This article examines the linguistic landscape (LL) of the Grand Mosque in Mecca and displays how this religious site holds within it diverse domains, each with their own LL and chosen display mediums. It exemplifies this by examining the LL of five domains within the mosque: Holiness, Education, Workplace, Local Governance and the Public Sphere. The results indicate the interest of religious sites as LLs and the exigency to regard language and medium in their overall construction.
