There are various plaques commemorating the rulers who renovated it. This one has the following inscription:

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful. All praise is for Allah, lord of the worlds and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the most noble of messengers, our leader Muhammad and upon his family and upon all of his companions. The renovation of the stairs of the blessed Ka’ba was carried out under the instruction of his eminence, custodian of the two noble sanctuaries, King Khaled bin Abdul Aziz Aal Sau’d in the month of Rabi’ Al Awwal, 1397 AH. May Allah accept his pious deeds Ameen.
