Makkah Al-Mukarramah is the capital of Islamic world. It receives special attention from the Saudi government’s rulers to transform it into a smart city for the benefit of millions of pilgrims. One of the 2030 vision objectives is to transform specific cities to smart ones with advanced technological facilitation, Makkah is one of these cities. The history of Makkah is not well known for some Muslims. As a result, we built the concepts of our application “Ain Makkah” to enable visitors of Makkah to know the history of Makkah by using technology. In particular “Ain Makkah” uses Augmented Reality to view the history of Al-Kaaba. A 3D model will overlay Al-Kaaba to show it in the last years. Our project will use Augmented Reality to build a 3D model to overlay Al-Kaaba. Future work will expand the number of historical landmarks of Makkah.
