“Exhibition of Two Holy Mosques Architecture of Haram and Nabawi Mosque” That was the writing on the left and right walls of the entrance of the Arstiketur museum in about 10 kilometers from the Grand Mosque of Mecca http://www.hajjandumrah.com/hajj-packages . Before entering the museum, which is on the right and left of the entrance, lined up several zam-zam water containers just like the one in the Grand Mosque and the Nabawi Mosque. So that museum visitors can enjoy the zam-zam water for free. Meanwhile, check out the hajj packages with affordable prices along with high-quality services from www.hajjandumrah.com/umrah-packages.

This museum is very different from the museums in other countries that I have visited. The second museum of the mosque, although not so wide and the collection is not up to hundreds in number, but every object and photo on display is very meaningful.

Especially for Muslims in the world. Because it describes how the architectural history of the two holy mosques in the City of Makkah and Madinah.

In this museum, there is a collection that has existed since the days of Abdullah Ibn az-Zubair, a friend of the Prophet Muhammad, namely a wooden pillar of one of the Ka’bah which was installed in 65 Hijri. In this museum, there are also wooden stairs to the door of the Ka’bah which were used in 1240 Hijri, and the doors of the Ka’bah which were installed in 1363 H.

Meanwhile, in the collection area related to the Zam-zam well, the ex-zam-zam well railing was exhibited. There are also zam-zam well hoists complete with brass buckets used to draw water. At present, the old building of the Zamzam well has been demolished when the Haram Mosque is expanded.

Therefore, this museum is very popular with museum visitors from various parts of the world. Especially along with the Hajj season. They come from Bangladesh, India, Nigeria, Malaysia, Singapore, Turkey, China, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, and so on.

Unfortunately, the information about museum collection objects which were inaugurated 20 years ago and opened to the public for free is very minimal. Even if there is information about the museum collection, the explanation is mostly written in Arabic.

Though visitors from various parts of the world want to know a lot about the history of the collection of goods. As well as photos of zam-zam springs, information about the depth of the well, how zam-zam water came out and so on all written in Arabic. If there are a guide and explanation in English it will be more interesting. In addition, the arrangement is not so neat that it feels full. Maybe because the room isn’t too wide.
