Jabal Omar to establish Islamic museum in Makkah

Sunday, January 6, 2019

Jabal Omar Development Company (JODC), a real estate developer in the Kingdom, and Samaya Investment Company have signed an agreement to rent a commercial space for establishing an Islamic and cultural museum.

The agreement was signed by JODC’s CEO Yasser bin Faisal Al-Sharif and Samaya Investment’s CEO Fawaz bin Abdullah Al-Mehrej.

“Jabal Omar Development Company is keen to provide the best service with the highest standards of quality and performance. The establishment of a cultural and religious museum showcasing different eras of the Islamic civilization comes in line with Vision 2030 that aims to enrich the cultural and religious experience of Makkah visitors,” said Al-Sharif.

The location of the museum was carefully selected for it to overlook the Grand Mosque. This provides Jabal Omar visitors and Hajj and Umrah pilgrims an opportunity to explore the museum and learn more about Islamic history and culture and the contributions of Muslims to world civilization.

Jabal Omar Development Company is one of the largest listed companies in the Saudi Tadawul Stock Exchange. Its flagship project, Jabal Omar, is a multi-use real estate development megaproject within a walking distance of the Grand Mosque of Makkah. 

Samaya Holding is an exhibition architecture, event management/production, design and media production company.

Operating in Saudi Arabia since 1999, the company has handled a number of high-profile, large-scale events and projects.
