Gimme some other religion/city combos. Who'd want this? Who wouldn't?
But then again, Jesus' birthplace is a small, serene space, while the Kaaba is about grandeur and ability to accomodate as many people as possible. Though it's debatable whether the building is too grand for its location, it is definitely more fitting for where it is as opposed to other religious centers for other religions.
