“But Ponn, we’re sitting at home in front of our laptops reading this blog post…we can’t just get up and fly to Jerusalem. That needs preparation!”
Check out this link. Yes, a VIRTUAL walking tour of Al-Haram al-Sharif–the third holiest site in Islam. This virtual tour makes you feel like you’re walking on the land around the two masajid, and inside too, observing the beautiful details the incredible Islamic architecture has to offer. The audio teaches you many things about the history and construction as well.
There is also a virtual tour of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. When “standing” in the outdoor corridors, the virtual tour even provides sound effects of the water and birds to make you feel like you’re really there with a very well-informed tour guide, SubhanAllah.
Another virtual tour provides you an in-depth and complete view of the Süleymaniye Mosque built during the Ottoman Empire. Check it out!
