Nokia – Hajj Navigation

For the Great Mosque of Mecca, we have created an interactive experience that helps visitors to access landmarks, services, and facilities around the Great Mosque. Visitors are being guided to the gates of the Great Mosque, Zamzam water points, Pharmacies, adjacent restaurants and more. In addition to that, the app provides content for some POIs that gives more explanation and historical information about the landmarks in the form of text, links and videos.
