Price for hajj in 2017 increased by $ 160

Price for hajj in 2017 increased by $ 160, the deputy mufti Akimzhan azhy Ergeshov said at a press conference.

According to him, the increase in cost is caused by the decision of Saudi Arabia, which due to the fact that the pilgrimage falls on a hot period, should take measures to improve the living conditions of pilgrims.

"Saudi Arabia intends to install fireproof tents in the Arafat Valley," the deputy mufti said.

In connection with this, Saudi Arabia raised the cost of the hajj by $ 200, but mufti Maksat azhy Toktomushev managed to reduce the price for Kyrgyz citizens to $ 160.
