コランの聖書とアラビア文字の書道芸術が何年にもわたってどのように進化したかを示すために美しい順番で展示されています。 しかし、メインがわからなかったのがちょっと残念です。 more »It is exhibited in beautiful order to show how the Koran Bible and Arabic calligraphy art have evolved over the years. However, it is a little regrettable that i did not understand the main.
A beautiful place to visit only drawback is the lighting (I am not an expert but maybe they would have given that sort of lightning to avoid damage to the rare old scriptures which are available there and if that's the reason am sorry for saying that light is the drawback) very spacious exhibit and aesthetically arranged a must visit in the Kingdom of Bahrain!
Very unprofessional and rude receptionist. He will force you to make a donations although it is out of ones choice to make donations. This has been happening for atleast 2 years. I think the management should look into this matter seriously as it is not only affecting the reputation of the great place but also the country itself. The place as such is wonderful with good collection of old Quran manuscripts. Although it seems it is not maintained properly. Toilets are extremely degraded.
