British Museum: “Hajj: journey to the heart of Islam”

26.01.2012

The British Museum has opened its exhibition on the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca that every devout Muslim must make at least once in their lifetime. It is the final part of a series of three exhibitions over the last 18 months on the subject of faith. The major exhibition on the Hajj aims to give visitors a sense of what this pilgrimage, one of the five pillars of Islam, is all about and, thus, lift the veil on a ritual that has remained very much a mystery to many non-Muslims. For more information on the exhibition, see: The British Museum. http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/hajj.aspx
