Well worth a visit - not many people visit Kuwait but this Mosque compares with others that are much better know. The guides are excellent.

We took a guided tour through the mosque. They tour guide was very knowledgeable and eager to answer question. He encouraged us to ask questions and take photos. They requested that my wife wear the traditional black cover-up to attend the the tour which we respected. We appreciated learning more about the culture of the Kuwaiti people.

The staff here were really polite, honouring, friendly & informative. We started with a cup of tea & biscuit, then my wife was given traditional clothing to put over her outfit. We were met by our guide and were given a tour - photos permitted - of the mosque's huge main prayer hall. (72 metres (236 ft) wide on all... More

The Grand Mosque allows visitors who are non Muslim - you can book a tour with some of the Kuwait community groups. While this mosque is very plain compared to the Grand Mosque in the UAE which also allows visitors, it is still pretty and worth a visit.

I've been here 3 times now, every time I have visitors to Kuwait I take them here, they love it and I learn something new each time. You just need to call the day before to make a booking. You arrive around 8am where you will be given tea and biscuits. They dress ladies in the traditional Arabic clothes and... More

The Grand Mosque was open every afternoon. We did not have to call or schedule an appointment. We just showed up during the open hours (5 - 7pm) at the time we were there. They gave us a nice tour of the lovely place and a bag of literature at the end. When we entered we sat in a waiting... More

The Grand Mosque (7th largest mosque in the world) isnt very easy to access, because you can only visit if you make an appointment by phone, and that (mobile) phone number can not be found in any travel guide or on internet. It is only listed on a piece of paper taped to the window at the entrance of the... More

The New decoration of the Massjed has finished in 2013 when the new opening took place in the last Ramadan Month, It is really marvelous decoration.

The library provides free literature to learn about The Islamic faith, posters, etc. all who are there are friendly and happy to share with you. The... More
