Qibla ?????


On the roof of the hotel room I currently occupy is the object on the right.

The word is ‘Qibla’ a term I had not come across before. A quick search on the web reveals that Qibla is the direction to Mecca which is important for people from the Muslim faith. This can be calculated from any point on the globe and the following web page provides an interesting account about how this works.

Fascinating!
