The House of Wisdom

Constructed in Baghdad in Abbassid-Era

This was a key institution for the translation of Ancient works into Arabic.

Astronomy, Mathematics, Chemistry, Medicine and Alchemy and Geography all flourished in the House of Wisdom, and in this Golden Age.

It was destroyed with the Mongol invasion of Bagdhad in 1258.
