The Holy Kaaba is the most sacred site of Islam, held by Muslims
to be the House of God. Pilgrimage to the Kaaba is one of the
fundamental rites of Islam, and its location determines the
direction Muslims turn to for their prayers.
This exhibition of 50 carefully selected items offers insights into the history of the Kaaba, the stages of its construction, its architectural features and adornment, and its religious and spiritual significance.
These photos, works of art, books and manuscripts testify to the deep effect the Kaaba has had on visitors for centuries.
The Library will host an opening ceremony for the exhibition on 1 May from 5:00 to 7:30 PM.
Date: 1 May – 1 October 2019
