Kazan to receive world’s largest Quran

The biggest Quran will be brought to Kazan Qolsharif Mosque on November 17.

This edition is 150×200 centimeters, has 632 pages and weighs 800 kg. It is printed on Scotland paper. The cover is made of malachite and semi-precious stones and is encrusted with phyanite, jade, gold and silver leaf.
