Praying towards Mecca. Computer artwork of a map of the World with lines showing the direction in which Muslims need to pray to be facing the Kaaba in Mecca (centre right), from any point on the globe. Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is the Islamic religion's holiest city being the birthplace of Mohammed, the founder of Islam. The city houses the Masjid al-Haram, the largest mosque in the world, which surrounds the Kaaba (a cube-shaped building), which Muslims turn towards while offering daily prayer. Followers of Islam are expected to visit Mecca at least once in their life.
