Abstract: GPR Device was used for discovering the landmarks and ruins under surface layers with 5m depth in the holy mosque of kufa. (250MHz) antenna was used in this task. This study was carried out through 38 profiles in different sites in the holy mosque. This research focused on surveying 15 profiles to find any remaining of the landmarks and foundation of the location that the black stone was placed. It is thought that the black stone which exists now in Mecca was moved from Mecca to Kufa as it was said by history in ( 897A. D - 317A. H) specifically in its holy mosque with 7m distance from the location that the prophet Muhammad's was pray which exists in the mosque with (7m, 4m) dimensions.
