Very easy to spot from a distance, the Spiral Mosque is hard to miss, located next to Souq Waqif. They ran a cultural program every Friday after Asr prayer (need to book in advanced) at the centre e.g. visits to Grand Mosque, introduction to Qatari life, etc. Worth a visit if you want to know more about Islam. They also offer Arabic courses.

Its central location makes it easily accessible and can be visited, this is an architectural work of immense value, as well as one of the symbols of the city.
I must admit that watching it at day time is undoubtedly very attractive but I would recommend it in the evening, with its own illumination it is fantastic, very nice view also in proximity to the Souk Waquif.

The ICC is an impressive building from the outside and is one of the Doha landmarks. However, I was more impressed with the Souq (Marketplace) Wakif adjacent to the ICC which comes alive in the evening. The Souq has been recreated with the old souk design and has narrow alleys with shops selling spices and all sorts of merchandise. A large number of restaurants serving food of all varieites and taste as well as sheesha are present within the souk area. The lighted souk and the view of the ICC from the souk area at night is visually great. Would highly recommend for a visit.

The place itself is a lot more worth than the art being diplayed (specially if you know other great Europeans museums). Simply just go and surprise yourself!

Educational, inspirational and seriously mind boggling. The education centre is very interesting - but the best way to really experience this centre is to join in one of the monthly tours of a local mosque, complete with dinner at the centre afterwards. Incredible!
