This project explores the use of virtual reality technologies as a new way to capture, store, and utilize spatial information, and creates original VR content to better understand the problems and potentials of using this technology for historical research.


The VR (virtual reality) tour of Qalawun Complex, one of the Islamic architectural masterpieces, was released. The VR tour provides 360-degree panorama view of the interior of the buildings with comments on its main features. Please feel free to use it for online learning and sightseeing. Please click the “!” symbol on each point in the VR tour to display a pop-up comment. You can also enjoy seeing Sultans’ coffin, which is not on general display.
