Thorough Virtual Tour of Haram-Al Sharif

Created for AramcoWorld Magazine, which aims to broaden knowledge of the Arab and Muslim worlds, this link opens up a detailed, interactive virtual tour of the Haram al-Sharif / Temple Mount Complex. An interactive map highlights 26 different sites and views of the complex, each with a panoramic 360° photograph and an accompanying audio narration explaining the history, significance and architecture of the sacred site. The virtual tour was created by Michael and Barry Gross, co-directors of the Virtual Architecture Project at the University of Virginia, and narrated by Oleg Grabar, Professor Emeritus of Islamic Art and Architecture at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey.
