Beautiful Experience
Feb 2020
This was my second visit and learned something different. Your mosque tour is actually done by mosque personnel not your tour guide. On arrival, you check in and are issued appropriate covering and remove your shoes. First, a history of how the mosque was constructed and the history, followed by a brief explanation of mosque practices and the meanings of the prayers etc. Free to walk around briefly before leaving. Lots of free brochures and booklets if you wish to learn more,
Its respectful and a great way to appreciate the culture you are visiting.

Welcoming experience to begin exploring Bahrain
Dec 2019
My husband was excited to begin my tour of Bahrain at the Grand Mosque. We arrived dressed respectfully, men in long pants (traditional cloak available to men wearing shorts) and I was offered an abaya (black cloak) to cover my clothes and a scarf for my head. We took part in a tour offered just as the mid afternoon Adhan (call to prayer) was beginning. The guides speak many languages and tours in languages other than English or Arabic can be arranged in advance. We were able to take pictures inside the beautiful building and we were encouraged to ask questions. We were given the option to stay for prayer time and observe from the upper mezzanine. Afterward, we had a couple of questions and a second guide took us back into the mosque to answer all of our questions for over an hour.
Friday mid-day is the busiest time at the mosque, and we would not have picked that time to go.
We would highly recommend taking the time to visit the mosque!

very nice experience

The mosque itself is simple and elegant and well worth a visit. Our guide for the roughly half-hour tour was Ahmed, a real scholar and gentleman who spoke excellent English and was able to explain a lot about its construction and about Islam. It amused me that the dawn call to prayer includes the line "prayer is better than sleep".
BTW If you're female, you'll need to wear the abaya and hijab they provide at the entrance. If you're male, you'll need to wear the provided kandura if you turn up in shorts.

Tour of Manama
Jan 2017 • Friends
Whilst on a cruise we stopped off in Manama and took a tour of the city. The first place we visited was this beautiful mosque. Had to be covered from head to toe in the black gown and headscarf proved, also remove our shoes. The guide was very informative and explained about the beautiful carpets, the marble and the lovely domed ceiling.
