The mosque is absolutely beautiful and a must-see if you plan on visiting Kuwait, Grand (hence the name) and imposing, yet full to the brim with intricate decorations. Prepare to be impressed.

I was not sure I would be able to get in as it was out of the regular visiting hours. This place is beautiful and enormous. The prayer room can hold 10000 and is incredible.

The tours conducted by the Aware is really one of the best way to explore this place and satisfy your curiousity. Many Expats in Kuwait miss the chance of seeing the Islamic architecture inside and therefore... More

The mosque is absolutely beautiful in its scope and detail. The management is extremely accommodating. I was fortunate enough to tour the mosque twice; once in the morning and once at night. It's worth doing like this, because it looks beautiful in the daylight and the chandeliers are also lovely at night. Once I was escorted by a very friendly... More

The bigest masjed in Kuwait,you can visit the place after prayer times so you can ask for a guide to help you with your tour and give you answers to any questions you have.you can bring your camera and take photos, women should cover there heads and wear long clothes. nice place to visit and great information to know.

In a country without a massive amount for Westerners, this is one of the more impressive buildings in Kuwait City. Worth a short visit, but more a case of ticking it off the list that a cultural enlightenment.

The tour was amazing, we were able to see the Amir's (King's) private room and the main prayer room with it's incredible architecture. Our... More

I have special interest in visiting Mosques all over the world. This is one of the best I have been so far. I did not expect the tour actually, but it was truly educational and in a way spiritual experience although I am not a muslim. Thanks to Redwan, a man who guided me and explained more about muslim way... More
