The website has been moved to its new domain, eQibla.com.
Besides a new design, several new features have been added to the website, including 3D maps, sharing option, comments section, documents, etc.
You can help us promote this new website by putting a logo from this page into your blog or website.
- drawing the curvature of the qibla direction
- displaying qibla direction in a more understandable format (not just degree from North)
- storing the last location visited in cookies and restoring it upon the next visit.
The first version of Qibla Direction is just launched. You can access it at: http://tanzil.info/qibla.
In this website, we have fixed a critical bug that several other Google Map based qibla websites suffer from, which causes them to draw qibla direction off by at most 12 degrees in certain locations on the map.
Update: (Oct 1, 2007)
Two nice qibla locating websites, qiblalocator.com and praytime.info, have just incorporated our algorithm to fix their error in drawing qibla direction. Thanks to their site administrators for their quick action.
