Chinese scroll with the text of Surat Al-Hajj from our Hajj and the Arts of Pilgrimage Collection is featured picture on the Wikipedia home page

By News

This evening marks the beginning of Hajj and we’re excited to share that this Chinese scroll with the text of Surat Al-Hajj from our Hajj and the Arts of Pilgrimage Collection is today’s featured picture on the Wikipedia home page.

Almost five metres in length, the scroll’s illustrations include a map entitled “Routes of the Hajj”, a view of the Great Wall of China, and views of Mecca and Medina, as well as diagrammatic depictions of the stations of pilgrimage and Jerusalem, including the Kaaba.
