Qiblah direction – no compass needed

Qiblah Locator is a great web site when you’re stuck without a compass or mosque to hand (and it’s too overcast to work out from the position of the sun in the sky vis-a-vis the time). Simply tap in the post code and it will overlay the qiblah direction over a Google Maps generated street map of the surrounding area. You should be able to easily work out which direction to pray with minimal orienteering skill.
