Renderlounge is proud to be the technical hand behind the development of the online interactive Sirah map of Makkah during the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Through our unique, one-of-a-kind interactive maps of early Islamic history, geography, and the Sīrah (Biography) of Prophet Muḥammad (ﷺ), we aim to be the world’s foremost authentic resource for multimedia and educational products and services of relevance to individuals, schools, museums, and other entities interested in displaying, teaching, or otherwise portraying the great legacy of early Islamic civilization.
The Makkah Map includes detailed text descriptions, voice narrations, and 3D animations of more than 37 geographic features and 117 topographic landmarks – including homes, markets, wells, and other features of the city as it existed during the lifetime of Prophet Muḥammad (ﷺ).
We utilized cutting edge realtime visualization tools such as Unreal Engine and Twinmotion to develop the graphics and then hosted online via the reliable Amazon AWS services for a world class online learning experience.

The map developed covers 3 Km x 3Km . This is the first dimensionally accurate map of historical locations thanks to a decades worth work of Mr. Abdul Aziz (Bin Imad) Al-Ateeqi.
The landmarks and the terrain textures are made accurate as per the actual terrain around the area at that time. The models of the houses and market places were developed after careful consideration and study of numerous historical records from both religious and milititary manuscripts.
With Twinmotion it was possible to cover such a vast area with so much of minute details. The future version of the maps are being developed using both Twinmotion and Unreal Engine utilizing the new Twinmotion Bridge.
