The Islamic Arts Museum (IAMM) is one of the best museums in Malaysia with over 7000 top quality artefacts from all over the Islamic world. This gallery showcases fine examples of Islamic architecture ranging from Africa to the Far East. I particularly liked the models of the Taj Mahal, unusual mosque designs in various countries and the large scale model of the Masjid al-Haram, Mecca.
The use of natural motifs such as plants, fruits and clouds make their way into local arts such as textiles. Examples of wood carving, metal handicrafts and kris designs are also featured. Where the Chinese and Islamic influences merged to produce some exquisite artworks including cloisonné wares and calligraphic scrolls. Collections of complete costumes from all over the Islamic world are on show as well as some fine wall coverings and rugs.
There are 12 permanent galleries:
Architecture,Quran & Manuscripts,India,China,Malay World,Jewellery,Textiles,Arms & Armour,Coins & Seals,Metalwork,Ceramics,Living With Wood.
