islamic arts in kuala lumpur
An independent museum (not sponsored by the government of Malaysia) which aims to collect the finest of artwork from all over the Islamic world. Like most museums in Malaysia the museum is divided by three sections, Malay, Indian and Chinese, to reflect the three majority groups of the country. In addition you will find sections on architecture (prominent mosques around the world in miniature models), textiles, ceramics, jewelry, glass, and manuscripts including Korans. I can say with ease that this is one of the most beautiful museums in the world, and travelers to KL would be crazy to not set a half day aside to visit this museum.
