This cultural corner aims to introduce some aspects and forms of Arabic arts and culture through a glance at films, music and literature. It is important to note that portraits, sculptures and music are frowned upon by Islam and that this led to the development of architecture and calligraphy.
Many of the projects like the Taj Mahal, Qutab Minar, Citadel of Salahuddin, Al-Hambra, Muhammad Ali Mosque, Blue Mosque, Red fort, Topkapi Palace and the Dome of the Rock were of epic proportions and are a testament to the creativity and genius of the people that undertook building them. However, the Arab world is a melting pot of styles and cultures.
Tour Arabia or view examples of clothing, architecture, cuisine and other aspects of the rich cultures of Arabs and Muslims by following my boards on Pinterest.
