Recently I have stumbled upon a great islamic website that offers the visitors many beautiful virtual tours to wellknown and little known places in the islamic world. The site is Sites in 3D. It is a turkish and english website. From their site you can download panoramic views of Mecca, the Kabah, the mosque of the Prophet Muhammad in Medina, the great and beautiful Blue Mosque in Turkey and other interesting places, mosques and palaces.
So, if you are interested in finding out how is it to be at those historic and beatiful places pay them a visit and download the virtual tours. The virtual tours will automatically started if you open the downloaded .exe files. You can then navigate with your mouse to look around the place, zooming in and out and for some tours hear a description about the place. There is also an option to make the tour your screensaver by pressing F5 key.
Just amazing to see those many panoramic images of interesting sites in the islamic world!
