A very interesting place to visit for those who have interest in Islamic history and Quranic scriptures. Was sad yo see that it is not being visited by very many people. Moreover there are no arrangements for salat for ladies.
Small but amazing collection of quranic manuscripts. Nicely laid out. There's mosque as well but they only have prayer facilities for gents.
It is a Quran museum that shows quranic manuscript of all ages and as old as 7th century AD. We have seen different styles of manuscript, all are very beautiful, few verses are written on stones also. Gallery is also very beautiful. We have seen a Pakistani masterpiece, a verse written on a rice seed, that can only be seen with the help of microscope.
Be careful while visiting on eid vacations usually it is off during public holidays and this status is not accurately updated on google maps. Where there normal operating hours are mentioned. The best solution is to first call at there contact number to avoid any surpirise when you reach there!
Beautiful architecture with majestic collection. Try to catch view of Prophet Mohammed's letter to King of Bahrain
This is a very fantastic place if anyone is interested to know about the history of Muslims. It has many old scriptures and old Holy Books preserved very safely in their museum.The museum also contains a prayer room which offers 5 times prayers daily. But does not offer the (jummah) friday prayers.The place also undertakes proper hygienic measures at all times..and it does not have a womens section for prayers..
The place is very cosy and not very big. You can finish it in under 30 minutes depending on how detailed you want to be. It has a vast collection of Qurans from the very early 1st century of Islam up to modern copies. Don't miss it. Admission is free and donations are welcomed. The museum has a mosque attached to it. The only reason I gave it four stars because it does not have any interactive exhibits, also, you can't see any staff, most probably because the admission is free and they don't have enough funds.
It has a very unique collection of Qurans than been written in varis period of the Islamic states
Boasting to be the only museum in the world dedicated to the Holy Quran, the entire visit there is a beautiful and equally humbling experience. Truly amazing place to visit!
A beautiful collection of 7th - 20th century Quranic manuscripts from all over the Central Asian world. No photography is allowed inside the museum of manuscripts.
Very nice to visit but should have some English explanations.
