Five Years of Athan and Prayer Call Automation: Celebrating Call2Prayer at Souk Al Bahar, Dubai

At LC Acoustics, we take immense pride in celebrating a significant milestone in our journey - five years of a successful partnership with Souk Al Bahar, Dubai. In 2019, we embarked on a transformative mission to revolutionize prayer management and background systems at this iconic destination. Today, as we reflect on our journey, we are humbled by the incredible impact of Call2Prayer.

Where Tradition Meets Technology

Nestled beside the Burj Khalifa and overlooking the Dubai Fountain, Souk Al Bahar is more than just a marketplace; it's a cultural gem. It's a place where visitors step back in time to the wonder and allure of old Arabia. Souk Al Bahar is quite likely one of the most photographed locations globally, and it deserved a prayer automation solution that could seamlessly harmonize tradition and technology. Call2Prayer emerged as the perfect bridge between these two worlds.
