360° Virtual Tour – National Mosque

The National Mosque of Malaysia is the main place of worship for the Malay Muslim community in Kuala Lumpur. In collaboration with Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia, Islamic Outreach ABIM Centre and Masjid Negara Malaysia, we created a 360° virtual tour that enabled mosque guides to conduct live guided sessions.

To optimise the user experience, we included personalised landing pages. The sign up and login form makes a power lead generation tool that helps the National Mosque collect data on the viewers before they carry out the video call. This also allows users to choose the guide they want based on three languages: English, Malay and Mandarin.

Our team spent days capturing eye-catching 360° aerial views and 4K DSLR photography in 10 sections of the mosque, commonly frequented by visitors on regular days. Every panorama is given professional post-production and retouching to ensure the best views of the attraction – including the clear skies (minus the construction sites) by the minaret! You will also be able to hear the call to prayer here, making the experience even more immersive.

We included a custom interface for ease of use, with a clean Click and Go navigation mode. Visitors only need to click on the ground to move between points, which makes them feel like they can go anywhere!

We also incorporated videos and stories that provide a lively insight into the features, architecture, history and function of the mosque.You can see the Main Prayer Hall light up in a timelapse sequence, watch a video on the call to prayer, and listen to an audio explanation.

A great virtual tour should have a call to action. We enabled this with two buttons on the top left hand corner, which would be displayed throughout the experience to maximise viewership and complete the user journey.

Since the launch of the National Mosque virtual tour, we have gotten lots of positive feedback from the guides. The mosque guides are reconnect with visitors during the pandemic, while generating awareness for the National Mosque in the long run.
