Hajj: Memories of a Journey
Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre, in collaboration with the Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi, has organised a historic exhibition in celebration of the Centre's 10th Anniversary. The Hajj: Memories of a Journey exhibition celebrates the rich legacy of the spiritual journey to the Sacred House of God in Mecca, through the display of more than 182 artefacts on loan from a range of institutions, as well as donations of personal Hajj memorabilia.
A diverse programme of workshops and talks has also been designed to accompany the exhibition, engaging a broad spectrum of ages with a view to showcasing and fostering the development of the arts.
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre’s vision and mission were created from the cultural and national values preserved and nurtured by the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may God rest his soul). These cultural values are still deeply-rooted in the consciousness of the people and are an extension of the national identity inspired by the teachings of the Nation’s religion.
