The Museum of Arabic Epigraphy, located along the northern
edge of the Great Umayyad Mosque, was established in 1975, to preserve and
display the art of Arabic script. The museum, housing collections of
illuminated manuscripts and Qurans, is situated in a late 15th
century Mamluk madrasa, decorated with colorful stones in geometric arrangements and stained glass windows.
