Tourism Selangor is expecting about 100,000 visitors over the two days, with the majority being domestic visitors. For the festival, they have chosen to highlight The Golden Age of Islam as their primary historical time of focus.
The Golden Age contributed much to the modern establishment of science, medicine, astrology, algebra and many other sectors. Muslim scholars built the world’s first observatory, developed the astrolabe, an instrument once called ‘a mathematical jewel’ and experimented with diet, drugs, surgery, and anatomy. The period also saw advances in Agriculture, with the preservation and improved network of wells, underground canals and waterwheels.
The 13,000-seater Stadium Malawati in outer Selangor has held scores of similar events, as well as concerts and sporting contests since its opening over ten years ago.
