Qibla Pointer: Guide to Qibla Direction (Makkah) using OpenStreet Map (previously we used Google Map)
This is a web service, similar to Qibla Locator, to
help find direction of Makkah or Qibla Direction
(direction to face for muslims during their daily prayers) from any
place on earth based on shortest distance or great circle
calculation utilising OpenStreet Map (In the past, Google Map was used. Now they charged for usage).
Distance to Ka’bah (Makkah)
?° from map’s North.
Determining Qibla Direction
Start by entering the name of your city and country
(e.g. Kuala Lumpur, MY). For many countries and cities, you can
even enter your street address (e.g. Rainbow St. 12,
Kingsford, Sydney, AU). The qibla direction will be
automatically calculated and displayed on the map.
You can also browse the map, zoom it in and out, to find your
interested location and then click the desired place. A
line will be drawn to indicate the direction of qibla or
Ka’bah in Makkah.
The compass above will indicate the qibla direction as an
angle relative to TRUE North (not compass North).
