Going to the Grand Mosque was the highlight of my trip to Kuwait. Our guide was extremely friendly and informative and the mosque was so stunningly beautiful.

Our guide, Muhammad, made this trip to the Grand Mosque delightful. He was educated in Washington State so he understood us! He explained in such a kind way how and why traditions became traditions. He knew all about the structure of the Mosque and even knew about the Italian chandeliers. Please go visit this beautiful Mosque and all the employees... More

Like most sites in Kuwait, no expense has been spared for this mosque. It is beautiful with the highest minaret in Kuwait. Unfortunately, the hours are erratic and you can't really on printed/internet hours.

Very nice mosque. If you have time few times a day there are guided tours, otherwise you can visit it on your own. Friendly security guards will show you the way. And there is a small shop with souvenirs and books as well as refreshments.

On the other hand worshipers are free to enter the mosque and pray. We do have a small reception area that provide souvenirs, books... More

There are free guided tours which is awesome. The staff are so welcoming offering you refreshments as you wait for a guide. They give ladies attire too to wear. The inside of the mosque is stunning. At the end they give you a bag filled with books & posters. The Grand Mosque is the number one thing to do in... More
