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

Every visitor to Kuwait would benefit from a tour of the Grand Mosque. The amount of time, skill and money poured into this titanic architecture is awe inspiring. Each wall is covered in mosaic, and each mosaic was done by hand. If a mistake was made, the artist had to start all over again, often tearing down many of the... More

However, I was directed to a special room where I was greeted with a female guide and given a burka to wear. She took me around the large mosque which was beautiful and she... More

Compared to the mosques in UAE and the Grand mosque in Muscat, this place is certainly not on par. Poorly maintained and architecturally unremarkable.
