A New Free Exhibition In Riyadh Is Showcasing 42 Rare Copies Of The Quran


There’s this awesome exhibition happening in Riyadh right now, and it’s all about showcasing the beauty of Islamic calligraphy through 42 rare copies of the Quran.
The King Abdul Aziz Public Library has been all about preserving and showcasing Islamic and Arab heritage for a whopping 40 years now.

They’ve collected rare photos, miniatures, manuscripts—you name it. Now, they’re showing their prized Quran collection to the world.

These manuscripts are on display at the King Abdul Aziz Centre, over in Riyadh’s Al Muraba Quarter.
What makes these copies special is that they’re all gilded and embellished.

Just so you know, you can swing by here during two time slots: from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM in the morning, and then again from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM in the evening.

By the way, Riyadh does have a lot of other cool activities in store for Ramadan as part of the Ramadan Season festivities, including things like Layali Diriyah, Manarah Art & Craft, and Al-Thuraya Dining.
