Central Library المكتبة المركزية

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This is not be the first time (and probably not the last) that I will have mentioned the beauty of the Central Library المكتبة المركزية at Princess Noura Bint AbdulRahman University جامعة الأميرة نورة بنت عبد الرحمن and that is simply because it is absolutely breathtaking.

Seeing the building from afar you can get only a slight idea of how grand it is. As you reach the massive entrance you feel minuscule in comparison. Once you step inside the glass and mental structures decorated with swirling letters from the Arabic alphabet catch your eye from all around. Sitting in one of the chairs in the main lobby you can nearly fall asleep while listening to the calming sound of the four trickling fountains. To the left and right are glass elevators that glide up 6 stories effortlessly and almost silently. Looking up you will be entranced by the silvery white dome that sits atop the building.

It is just utterly fantastic.

الحمد لله‎
