The Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Arabic Persian Institute is located in the heart of the Tonk city amid the valley of two historical hills, Rasiya and Annapoorna. The Institute has a beautiful gallery that was started in 2002. Charming calligraphic designs have been placed in the museum, and these have been done on human hair, rice, pulse and sesame seed. In the Display Hall of the museum, important manuscripts have been stored with seal impressions of kings.

Major attractions here are Aurangzeb’s hand-written holy Quran, biographical notices of 74 kings of Iran, Persian translation of Ramcharit Manas, Akbarnama and Shahnama. Most of the literature housed here is from the personal collection of Nawwab Muhammad Ali Khan, the third ruler of Tonk.
