A must See in Doha, Do not miss out on the nice Cafe with the sea view. There is a "Friday" market on Saturdays on the grass/parking area. Enjoy.
An iconic building in Doha and stands out both in the day and night. Inside there is a space aimed at educating nonMuslims about Islam - some interesting info, but I was expecting more to be honest. I understand on certain days they organise mosque tours and traditional meals but we did not experience any of that. Free entry.
Very easy to spot from a distance, the Spiral Mosque is hard to miss, located next to Souq Waqif. They ran a cultural program every Friday after Asr prayer (need to book in advanced) at the centre e.g. visits to Grand Mosque, introduction to Qatari life, etc. Worth a visit if you want to know more about Islam. They also... More
Its central location makes it easily accessible and can be visited, this is an architectural work of immense value, as well as one of the symbols of the city. I must admit that watching it at day time is undoubtedly very attractive but I would recommend it in the evening, with its own illumination it is fantastic, very nice view... More
The ICC is an impressive building from the outside and is one of the Doha landmarks. However, I was more impressed with the Souq (Marketplace) Wakif adjacent to the ICC which comes alive in the evening. The Souq has been recreated with the old souk design and has narrow alleys with shops selling spices and all sorts of merchandise. A... More
Educational, inspirational and seriously mind boggling. The education centre is very interesting - but the best way to really experience this centre is to join in one of the monthly tours of a local mosque, complete with dinner at the centre afterwards. Incredible!
A friend had suggested we visit to get a better understanding of Islamic culture and I suspect that is unfortunately exactly what we got. My wife who was respectably dressed was offered the opportunity to see midday prayers. But instead of being escorted into the screened female only viewing area, she was confronted by a rude woman that refused repeated... More
The Fanar cultural center is a wonder building architecturally, dominating the skyline or its side of Doha Bay. Inside the building, you get a free presentation about Islam and a handful of short books (all free). I was a bit disappointed with the content as the facts presented about Islam are very basic and anyone with even a passing familiarity... More
This is a beautiful building that is lit up in the night in a way that will draw you to it. A real feature and jewel of architecture. But inside, it lacks finesse. I expected more - the mandate of this place is to make Islam transparent to the non-believer. Yet, much of the information was pithy and surface. Massive... More
