This 18th century chart of the Great Mosque of Mecca (Masjid al-Haram) is part of the literary tradition surrounding the pilgrimage to Mecca (hajj), including books of prayers, practical guides with schematic depictions, and pilgrimage certificates. Similar maps are thought to have been produced for Indian pilgrims in the 18th and 19th centuries by draughtsmen working in the Hijaz. (Source: the Online Gallery of the Agha Khan Museum)
