Photo of the Day: What in the world?

Update: The correct answer to today’s question is Kabul, Afghanistan, where the Holy Quran calligraphy was inaugurated.

You’re looking at the world’s largest hand-written Koran. Or at least, that is what Hussain Khedri (pictured second right, below) claims to have completed after five years, with the help of nine students.

The Koran was unveiled at a special ceremony in the presence of key religious figures, clerics, scholars and a huge audience earlier today. Can you tell me where the Koran was unveiled?
