The Bimaristan Nur al-Din, constructed in 1154 (549 AH) is the earliest surviving example of an Islamic hospital. It was built by Nur al-Din Mahmud ibn Zengi, ruler of Syria from 1146–1174 (540–569 AH) with funds from his waqf, a charitable endowment meant to finance public and religious institutions. The Bimaristan was a medical school as well as a hospital, and was known for using innovative healing techniques such as music therapy. The word “bimaristan” is of Persian origin, meaning “place of the sick.” This Dataverse contains panoramic images, photogrammetry and Lidar files for Bimaristan Nur al-Din
