“A mosque worth a visit in Bahrain”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is the largest mosque in Bahrain with a nice outside facade. I have seen larger mosques during my travels abroad. The interior is OK with a large prayer area. The mosque was packed to capacity during Friday prayers. The building next to the mosque which I think is a library is impressive.

“Wow, interesting”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

It is a beautiful structure, well worth the tour, which is free. Open everyday but Friday. Must see when in Manama. I feel one should dress decently, I had slacks and a polo. The ladies were asked to cover there head, not face and were provided nice scarfs, or head things.

“A look into Islam”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

This mosque is beautiful, marvel at the geometric beauty of the shapes and the immense feeling of power felt in this place of worship.

Remember to be respectful as this is a place of worship and adhere to the local islamic custom.

“Interesting”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Very good visit although the french guide was trying to convince us too much that Muslim was the righteous religion a bit too heavy
