A pious businessman and concerned businessman established a foundation in 1992 to build an underground shrine in rural Pakistan where up to 2.5 million old and disused copies of the Qur’an are stored.

The businessman, Samad Lehri, decided to establish the foundation known as Jabal-e-Noor after realizing that there were many old copies of the Islamic holy book that were in a state of disrepair.

The shrine features a series of tunnels stretching to around 3.5 kilometers long. It is reported that some of the copies are up to 600 years old.

The foundation is building more tunnels to create space for thousands of more copies, and the demand for space is still rising.

The shrine has also become a tourist attraction, as many religious observers are attracted to the prospect of seeing historical copies of the Qur’an, some of which are preserved in glass cases.
