The most important holy landmarks in Kuwait city. The facilities very comfortable for acting Islam holy prying and study Quran also studying the Islam regulations and rules. The mosque building it has the Islam spirit style plus the modern style, the building capacity 15, 000 or more people prayers. If you visit Kuwait I encourage you to visit the mosque.

I went to visit the mosque for checking the building structure because alot of problems occured in the building since it is in the sea side, it is just built in 1980's and there is no special thing in it

I came here several times for Friday prayer and a really liked the place and how it managed. You have a big space for parking a big backyard where you can take pictures with a large view on the city.

It's a huge, beautiful and impressive structure that is a must see for anyone visiting Kuwait. Never have we seen anything so spectacular. Architecturally, quality of materials and fabrics that make up this place are the best. It's breathtaking in every sense of the word.

The guide explained many things not only about the tour but also about Kuwait. The architecture is remarkable and absolutely stunning. Toward the end we visited an islamic art... More

I've taken a tour there in 2013 which was awesome! They took us to the king's meeting room and all around the mosque. the only thing is the indoor area is incredibly small so you'd probably be stuck praying in the heat!
