The General Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques Affairs has prepared 60 classic incense burners, known locally as “Mabkhara,” to perfume the religious sites on a daily basis with bukhoor and oudh fragrances.

The Saudi Press Agency ran a series of photos showing the process of how Bukhoor is used to scent the Holy Kabaa and the Majid al-Haram. It also said the Black Stone or al-Hajre Aswad, is scented with oudh five times a day using more than five kilos of the fragrance.
