Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, and every muslim must make a pilgrimage to Mecca at least one time in their lives. This major new exhibition at the British Museum will chart the history of this journey, exploring how pilgrims have tackled it through the centuries.

On display will be a number of objects, textiles and manuscripts, which will trace the spiritual significance of the rituals that have remained unchanged since the 7th-century.
