This interactive gallery puts the 14th-century path of Ibn Battuta's Haj and on-location shots of Journey to Mecca's cast and crew into the geographical context of North Africa and the Middle East, past and present. The map overlay is an adaption of the 1154 world map by the famous Arabic cartographer, Muhammad al-Idrisi.
