The robot, which is controlled remotely, supports 11 languages: Arabic, English, French, Russian, Persian, Turkish, Malawi, Urdu, Chinese, Bengali and Hausa.

The robot also includes a 21-inch touch screen that can be used to serve several issues of concern to visitors of the Grand Mosque, such as guiding and expressing an opinion. The four wheels robot is equipped with a smart stoppage system that allows it to move seamlessly and flexibly, in addition to having high-quality cameras for transmitting.

The presidency also offers the service of “Maqra’ Al-Haramayn”, the Two Holy Mosque Reader, that teaches the Holy Quran from the Two Holy Mosques to Muslims around the world through using modern technologies via transmitting from inside the Grand Mosque for those who want to improve recitation and receive certificates, and for visitors of the Grand Mosque, or those willing to receive education remotely through six languages: Arabic, English, Urdu, Indonesia, Malawi and Hausa.
