Islamic Heritage Cities Platform
The project main output is a portal of all cities rich in Islamic heritage. The project is starting with Egypt cities ex Cairo, Rosetta, Qasr, but is done with a vision to extend to cover cities rich in Islamic heritage along the Arab world, Africa and around the world. The project goes beyond documenting and highlighting the Islamic heritage and history including monuments, important figures, museums, artifacts and traditions. We also target the empowerment of Islamic heritage cities to attain sustainable development by generating a platform for the exchange of technology and knowledge regarding heritage and the transition to resilience of such cities.
Within this project we are currently working on two publications one is a glossary for Islamic heritage terms and another is a bibliography of Islamic heritage.
The project aims to increase awareness as to cities rich in Islamic heritage, including highlighting the history of such cities and its urban development. The project also aims to highlight Islamic tangible and intangible Islamic heritage related to such cities.
