RIYADH: Omani Minister of Endowments and Religious Affairs Mohammed bin Said Al-Maamari recently visited the Hira Cultural District exhibit in Makkah.
He also toured the Revelation Exhibition and noted the quality of content and presentation.
Qatari Minister of Endowments and Islamic Affairs Ghanem bin Shaheen Al-Ghanim, and his accompanying delegation, visited the cultural district and Revelation Exhibition too.
The General Authority for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque is showcasing advanced technology and contemporary facilities designed to enhance the pilgrimage experience for visitors to the Two Holy Mosques.
The exhibition aims to raise public awareness about the range of services provided by the Saudi government to pilgrims.
The exhibits include items such as tools used for washing the Kaaba, a documentary showing the process of knitting the Kaaba’s cloth covering, and a digital corner with an interactive screen displaying key apps catering for the needs of pilgrims, Umrah performers, and mosque visitors.
Located close to the cave of Hira in the Makkah mountains, the Hira Cultural District comes under the supervision of the Royal Commission for Makkah City and Holy Sites.
The project contributes toward enriching the religious and cultural experiences of pilgrims and Makkah residents, one of the objectives of Vision 2030.
