Ahmed Al Fateh Islamic Center, Manama

4.4
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Bahrain
A visit to Ahmed Al Fateh Islamic Center allows you to admire the country’s largest mosque, and one of the largest in the world, dedicated to the founder of Bahrain. Over 7,000 people can worship here at one time thanks to the mosque's large surface area of 6,500 sq m (1,60 ac). The best way to explore and learn is to take a guided tour--available in several languages--which will lead you through the complex and tell you more about the history and customs of the area. Don’t miss the national library inside the complex, with over 7,000 books, including some incredibly rare old editions.

    It looks impressive and is aesthetic architecturally ... but apart from that there is really not much to it.  more »

    I took a guided tour, it was very interesting because it explained about Islam, customs and rules of religion and how does a mosque, etc. Cultural, it's worth the ride. During pre determined the groups of people with a guide, was the difference, since all information was passed by.

Where to stay in Manama

Manama waterfront areas boast many hotel chains playing a game of one-upmanship to see who can get higher and more luxurious than the rest. The Modern and Post-Modern skyscrapers contain luxury hotels with onsite malls, swimming pools, spas, and fine-dining restaurants. Look farther inland for simpler hotels, as well as rental apartments, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts in the residential, older districts.
