Housed in a building spectacularly engraved with Arabic script, Beit al Quran (House of Quran) showcases a fascinating collection of Quranic manuscripts dating back to the 7th century, as well as a library of over 50,000 books written in Arabic, English, and French that center mostly on Islam. Beit al Quran is claimed to be the only institute in the world devoted to the Quran. Within its collections feature Qurans written on parchment, rice, peas and grains. A mosque, an auditorium, a madrasa (religious school), a museum and a variety of art exhibitions are also housed in the building.
