Beit Al Quran information
With its wrapping of carved Kufic script, the distinctive Beit Al Quran is a fine example of modern Bahraini architecture. It houses a large and striking collection of Qurans, manuscripts and woodcarvings and functions as a good introduction to Islam in general, and Islamic calligraphy in particular. Look out for the miniature Qurans, the smallest of which (from 18th-century Persia) measures only 4.7cm by 3.2cm. The exhibits are well labelled in English and can be superficially perused within an hour.
The main entrance and car park are at the back, on the southern side of the building; access is off Exhibition Ave. Tours are often organised – call ahead to check. Visitors should dress conservatively.
