VR Karbala

Independent. Non-profit. Innovation

VR Karbala consists of experts, scholars and volunteers from many different cultures and countries. We are an independent and non-profit organization with the aim of bringing the tragedy of Karbala to life again by using Virtual Reality.

The Idea behind VR Karbala started in Denmark in the year of 2015 as a result of a bachelor and later master thesis by Nazer H. Mehrali. The aim of the thesis was to analyze how technologies such as Virtual Reality can be used to create immersive, realistic and different understand of the tragedy of Karbala by allowing the users to “travel back in time” and experience the tragedy as they were present in Karbala themselves.

Since May 2017, the project of VR Karbala is officially initiated, and even though we have had several productions so far, we are still developing new scenes.
