I have to say for someone who is a buff of history I did enjoy my visit and to see the evolution of Writing to printing an painting the holy verses and Quran. It is not a very big place and will take just an hour time to visit it

The collection of Quranic manuscripts dating from earliest times to the present is very inspiring and extremely interesting. The handwritten Qurans are a marvel of artistic talent and workmanship. Very, very impressive. A must-see for Muslims and non-Muslims alike

Interesting place for calligraphy enthusiasts. But they will ask you to leave once the prayers start which was not a professional thing to do.

This is a large-ish fort with a great view of the skyline. Not a bad spot for pictures. You can go inside some of the rooms inside the fort and there is no entrance fees.
