An all-new museum of Islamic civilizations has been opened in Turkey.

An all-new museum of Islamic civilizations has been opened in Istanbul’s Grand Camlica Mosque Complex in Turkey.

According to middleeastmonitor.com, the museum is hosting works selected from the collections of the Topkapi Palace and Palace Collections Museum, Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum, Istanbul Archaeology Museum, Istanbul Tombs Museum and Foundations Museum.

The museum, which was inaugurated on Friday, features rarely seen artifacts that belong to 1,200 years of Islamic history, with nearly 800 pieces reflecting the development of Islamic art from the seventh to the 19th centuries.

Built in a closed area of 10,000 square meters, the museum includes 15 thematic sections such as woven Turkish art, works attributed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and architectural elements in Islamic art.

Visitors to the museum have the chance to see many more works such as representative footprints of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the curtain of Mecca’s holy Kaaba.
