We went to visit the mosque by chance at prayer time and so saw it in action. The bathrooms were very clean and decorative. The mosque itself is very large and has colourful decorative windows. I have never seen so much parking next to a mosque. Outside the views of Doha were a great photo opportunity. There were signs up... More

This is Qatar's one of the biggest masjids. It is one of the masterpieces in Qatar. Great example of modern architecture and mixture of Arabian culture as well. Huge chandeliers in side and all the modern amenities are available. Lots of parking area outside in the basements as well.

My wife and I visited as part of a tour conducted by the Fanar Cultural Center. Since it was an introduction to Islam, we were there for quite a while during the evening prayer as our guide discussed the tenets of Islam. It's a beautiful modern mosque. Be sure to visit it if you can. Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu... More

Settled up hill from the corniche is the State Grand Mosque with a beautiful view over Doha inner city. The mosque itself it worth a visit and the staff there is quite nice and open compared to other Doha experiences where they normally just ignore you. The mosque fits 10.000 men and 5.000 women each friday.

If u have children then they are not allowed into the main prayer area. The mosque itself has 99 domes which can be seen from the outside, and there is a chandelier per dome on the inside. At night it is lit up and worth a look. The views of the corniche skyline from outside the mosque are great.
