A nice and big place located in the centre of Doha City. Grand Mosque or Masjid Mohd bin A. Wahab or Al Dawla (country) mosque is one of the biggest mosque in Qatar or maybe the biggest. Capacity more than 6000. It's a unique architectural beauty. Everything in and out attract you.

Offered a prayer in the evening but missed the congregate prayer either maghrib or isya'. Attending the congregational prayer makes a difference

Situated on the Corniche next to the Emiri Diwan, and alongside the clocktower, the Grand Mosque features some striking architecture, with numerous domes and a distinctive green and white colour combination. Although not open to the public, it still presents a photo opportunity. Check ebook.marhaba.com.qa to read about the must visit destinations in Qatar. You may also check Marhaba's blog... More

From outside the building suppose look like old buildings style in GCC. From inside it is work of are and that is why you should visit it. Just one note Sheikh Zayed Mosque is more attracting.

Just newly constructed and is a real work of art and certainly a place to visit while on visit in Qatar. It's just off the Corniche and one can't miss it from miles around.

You will be amazed by the sheer size of it. The architecture, the lights, the pillars, even the doors are really beautifully done.

I went with the Qatar Foundation group, so there were a lot of us, a visit with a small group is more recommended. If you contact Fanar, near Souq Waqif, you can sign up for a tour with a small group of about eight people and they will take you up in the tower. The inside is impressive and can... More

We visited just as the sun was setting and it was spectacular. The architecture is a feast for the eyes, and the view of the modern city in the background was great too. It is such a peaceful and serene place. Make sure you go inside and look around. Men and women will have to enter separately, however you are... More

"Allah Almighty be Praised". Green Minaret is a landmark of 'Grand Mosque' which is located on the Corniche and adjacent to Clock Tower of Diwan-e-Emire. Police man at the picket of Clock Tower checks the visitors going to Grand Mosque at random and every tourist is not permitted to enter here. More specious in magnitude is 'State Grand Mosque' which... More
