Ziyara GPS™ – The App for Islam’s Holy Sites
Ziyara GPS™ is the world’s leading mobile app for religious, historical, and touristic sites in the two most holy cities of Islam – Makkah and Madinah – and also the world’s first GPS-linked guide for Hajj and Umrah. It is a free app, available to anyone for download and use both on Apple and Android.
This world-exclusive app documents over 500 of the most important sites in the Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah, some of which have been documented for the first time globally. The app also features some of the most beautiful historic and contemporary photography and multimedia for the sacred sites, also in many instances, world-exclusive for Ziyara GPS™.
Ziyara GPS™ has been specifically created to encourage Muslims to visit all holy sites of Islam to strengthen their own spirituality and enhance their knowledge by celebrating the heritage of their religion.
Each site location in Ziyara GPS™ tells a different story and presents a different time in Islamic history. Not only does it open a world of unknown opportunities and knowledge, but it is also a fantastic way to educate Muslims, non-Muslims, and future generations about Islamic heritage.
Ziyara GPS™ is a 100% philanthropic initiative and with our new wide expansion, welcome your contributions towards the project.
Funds for the expansion will prioritise focus on the following:
• Research and authentication of 1,000+ more sites in Makkah and Madinah
• Geographic expansion to include the global Islamic holy sites in the likes of the Levant, Fertile Crescent, Mediterranean, Asia, and the West
• Exciting new developments in Ziyara GPS™ focused on the major Prophets and Messengers, peace be upon them, and their journeys
