Façade design from Makkah?

Whilst in Wakaf Che Yeh, Kota Bahru recently I came upon a few rows of shophouses with façade designs resembling buildings one would more often find in Makkah and Madinah.

I thought it was quite clever of the architect to 'copy' the facade design and adapting it to our local shophouse design, what with Kelantan fondly referred to as Serambi Makkah.
