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

Took the opportunity to join the tour organised by Fanar one Friday afternoon and it was time worth spending. The architecture was simple from the outside but as you entered it, you would be amazed with the beauty and serenity of the prayer hall.

I was part of an organized tour into the Mosque so I cannot say how an individual visit would go down. That said the visit was wonderful eye-opener into Islamic worship. We were welcomed and given a glimpse into the call for prayers and were able to witness prayers from the comfort of the inner house of the Mosque. The... More
