A visitor takes a closer look at the historic manuscripts at the National Library's current exhibition.
The National Library presents an exploration of our nation’s history and cultural heritage through ancient manuscripts.
A common image associated with history is the recording of it – a dilligent scribe penning down his or her observations of the world around them for the sake of future generations.
The thought of visiting an exhbition of such records however, may not sound exciting to most.
However, the Malay Manuscripts Exhibition 2014 currently taking place at the National Library of Malaysia should not be missed by those who love history.
It is believed that there about 10,000 Malay manuscripts housed in about 151 institutions around the world.
