Jakarta (Indonesia Window) – The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, represented by the Projects and Engineering Studies Agency, announced on Thursday (May 20) that it has installed interactive screens displaying a map of the Grand Mosque and its squares and facilities as part of its plan to upgrade the Grand Mosque’s guidance system for visitors.

This service aims to facilitate access to religious sites and key locations including the mataf (the area for circumambulation around the Holy Kaaba) and the mas’a building (the area for a slight jog between the hills of Safa and Marwa), Arab News reported.


The interactive screens display data in six languages and provide a QR code so that the routes can be viewed on smart phones and tablets.
