Kiswa

The Kiswa is the special cloth cover of the holy Kaaba at the Grand Mosque in Makkah. Around 670 kilograms of raw silk is stitched together in five different parts and fixed to the base with copper rings. It is decorated with Qur’anic verses embroidered onto the cloth with 120 kilograms of 21-karat gold thread and 100 kg of silver thread. The cost of making a new 850-kg Kiswa is estimated to cost SR25 million, or over $6.5 million, making it the world’s most expensive covering.
