 9 Temple

The name of the sim can be translated as: The Congress (or the seat, the meeting place) of Spirits.
The Jinn are mythical beings of great power that exist somewhere between heaven and earth.

 0927Persia1_001

In western culture they are often thought of as Djinn/Jinni/ Genie, and are often the granters of wishes when found and released. In middle eastern culture, the Jinn are mentioned in the Quran as beings created by Allah, where men were created from clay, the Jinn were created from fire, and just like men, have free will, and the ability to choose to be good or not. The subject of Jinn in Muslim culture is today at least, often taboo, as they are often blamed for causing mischief on earth.

Majailis Al Jinn is an island reflecting the enchantment and the wonder from tales like 1001 nights, or even modern stories such as ‘Prince of Persia’. Here Western and Far East cultural influences can be found blended in.

SL Destinations: Forgotten City

Greetings fellow adventurers,

04.08_steam12

Today the Wife and I ventured into the AMAZING Forgotten City.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_007

04.08_steam11

A Steampunk world of Gears and Steam, Industry and Automatons,

04.08_steam10

04.08_steam20

Air Ships and Rockets set over many levels.

04.08_steam9

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in settings inspired by The Industrialized Western Civilization during the 19th century’s British Victorian era or America’s “Wild West”.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_022

From the starting point in the lower City you will find information and a teleporter to the many other activities and points of interest.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_004

We started our visit by taking in the sights by Hot Air balloon, and then by Boat through the winding canals.

04.08_steam19 0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_034

Brass Autobot Citizens can be found occupied, or walking the streets tending to the workings of the city, along with many clockwork cats.

04.08_steam17 04.08_steam7

On the Toy Factory’s platform you are able to buy many of the vehicles, buildings and objects found around the city.

Here you can sit and enjoy some interactive games.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_014

There is a racing track with cars free to rez, or if you fancy your chances fighting extraterrestrials, an Alien hunt game.

04.08_steam21

Still feeling in the mood for activities? Why not take a chair lift to the mountain summit and compete with friends in the long distance ski jump.

 

04.08_steam1

After that you can dance away into the small hours in the ballroom or relax at the sausage stand.

04.08_steam2

Many of the buildings are available to rent so if you enjoy your visit as much as we did you may want to make your home there too!
