Al Khamis Mosque and Beit Al Qur’an Museum
Dating back to 692 A.D, Al-Khamis is the oldest mosque in Bahrain. However this is disputed and a date pertaining to the 11th century is more probable. The elegant identical minarets were made in the 15th century and are mystifying and peaceful. It is no longer in use and is open to public viewing.The Beit Al Qur’an, or House of the Quran, houses a collection of the Qurans and antique manuscripts covered in stunning calligraphy. The building comprises a mosque, auditorium for civic functions and a school in addition to the library and museum.
