"Fascinating Museum at the Port"

This colossal, ziggurat-style building on the eastern end of Doha’s Corniche is a living work of art designed by Chinese-American architect I.M.Pei. Within its striking limestone walls, visitors are introduced to a spellbinding world of Islamic art curated from around the globe, with some exhibits dating as far back as 1,400 years ago. The collection is an enchanting mix of treasures from three continents and includes priceless Islamic artifacts retrieved from Central Asia, Egypt, India, and other nations. Located at the end of a long, palm-lined walkway, the Museum of Islamic Art overlooks reflecting pools and is considered a stunning example of modern Islamic architecture. This phenomenal masterpiece leaps across multiple tiers of astounding artistry, beautifully represented in its symmetrical arches, geometric fixtures inspired by Egyptian mosques, and sleek lines that attest to the architect’s eye for detail and enhance the cultural and religious aspects of the remarkable structure.
