Islamic Mirage Museum
This museum-like center offers a collection of unique Islamic art pieces collected from various parts of the Muslim world such as Egypt, Syria, Iran, India, Iraq, Kashmir and Russia. The works range from carpets decorated with pictures or a jeweled restaurant, hand-woven with great care, silk textiles, jewelry, marble pieces, colors engraved with Arabic script, and miniature paintings. The staff of the center puts their expertise at the disposal of visitors, providing them with information on the history of the pieces and their origins, and the technical methods used in making them.
The Mirage Center provides guests with a free shuttle service to and from the hotel where they live, and offers refreshments, Arabic coffee (halal) and dates for groups of over 50 visitors.
