Cultural Square

With an inspiring sculpture of the Holy Qur’an at its centre, this landmark square is surrounded by majestic architecture and landscape gardens.

More a central roundabout than a typical city square, Cultural Square features a 15-metre-high sculpture of the Holy Qur’an as its centerpiece. Designed by Spanish sculptor Carlos Marinas Rubias, it represents the spiritual heart of the city.

It is encircled by a number of stately buildings built in traditional Islamic style, including the Ruler’s Office, the Ahmad Bin Hanbal Mosque and the Cultural Palace, which is used for concerts and events.
