The Masjid Al-Haram, "The Sacred Mosque," located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is the largest mosque in the world surrounding one of Islam's holiest places, The Kaaba. In July 2012, professional photographer Issam Kanafani captured a beautiful Gigapan image of the Grand Mosque at night. The image became immensely popular, with almost 700,000 people viewing it within the first two weeks it was posted on the Gigapan website. Within 6 months, the image had more than 2.5 million unique page views and now, a year after the image was captured, it remains one of the most visited Gigapan images. Learn more about this image in this month's Success Story.
