Photographer's Note

Beit Al Qur'an in Bahrain if translated means House of Quran. Manuscripts of holy Quran, the religious scripture of the Muslims were kept in this building. Though the Arab peninsula is Muslim dominated, no other country except Bahrain has a temple built to contain this scripture. Though Beit Al Qur'an in Bahrain contains the Quran, all visitors irrespective of religious beliefs are allowed to enter this beautiful building. The complex also contains a mosque, a library, an auditorium, a school and a museum as well. The museum at the Beit Al Qur'an in Bahrain has ten exhibition halls that offer a glimpse of the rare books, manuscripts and other religious motifs to the visitors. Inside the museum, Quran manuscripts from different parts of the Islamic world have been perfectly preserved. You can see manuscripts from non Islamic countries like China, Spain to that of strictly Islamic nations.
