My visit to Qatar's Museum of Islamic Art was an inspiring and great learing experience for me to get a full understanding of the islamic arts and culture from various countries.
There are hundreds of photographs in RAW format which I hope to find time to catalog them and share with you online soon. Thank you for joining me in a brief tour to Qatar Museum of Islamic Art through my blog and if you are in Doha or if opportunity allows you may visit Doha one day, I encourage you to see this beautiful and inspiring museum.
