So we had to settle for FANAR of the Qatar Islamic Cultural Centre and luckily there was an small scale exhibition held in the building.

this one copied from the Net because it was impossible to get a full view of this building

the elaborate information on the walls

some of the exhibits

beautiful khat (Islamic calligraphy) on display

On the first floor, there was a mosque which made our visit easier. There should be no worries of finding a place to pray in this country.

Al-Qur'an in different languages

the view from inside the building

the replica of the spiral minaret

I was glad that we had spent some time here in one of the significant landmarks of Doha. Click HERE if you want to find out more about FANAR.
