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

Very well worth the visit. You have to go on a tour and these are offered about every 30 minutes in many languages. I was the only tourist at 10 am. It is a lovely mosque and worth the visit.

For women, if you don't have the right clothing, the friendly mosque staff have something suitable available for you to borrow. The mosque is beautiful, and there is ample explanation about the venue and Islam for you to find out more. There are... More

Words cannot explain this amazing structure, when one first lays your eyes upon it, you have an absolutely serene and calming feeling that comes across you the moment you walk inside. My tour was conducted by a very pleasant lady called "Fajer", who made me feel very welcome and had an amazing knowledge of the history behind the Mosque. I... More

This is the 8th largest mosque in the world and very beautiful. The best thing about it though was the very fine tour we were given by a most knowledgeable and articulate young woman. She was very comfortable with us asking questions about Islam and was able to take us into all areas of the mosque so it was an... More

I visited the mosque within a group of people from different nationalities. We were all impressed by the guide who is a benevolent retired Koweiti who speaks a huge number of languages and was able to discuss with every one with his own language. The Mosque is a nice place to see many aspects of islamic art and learn about... More
