Astrolabe | Islamic | The Met This astrolabe contains three retes, or interchangeable plates, with diagrams keyed to the location of Jerusalem, Medina, and Damascus. These plates as well as the astrolabe’s compact size would have been useful on pilgrimages to two of Islam’s holiest cities, Medina and Jerusalem. In addition to wayfinding, astrolabes were employed to tell the time, make measurements in surveying land, and verify the direction of Mecca, which Muslims face when praying.
