  • The best place to visit when coming to Bahrain. One of the biggest mosque in the world. They do have special visits for non muslims throughout the week. Special programs are arranged on the 2nd and 3rd day of Eid. So if you are in Bahrain now don't forget to visit the Eid open house event on 13/09/2016 and 14/09/2016.
  • The most prominent landmark in Bahrain. My favorite place for Eid Prayers. A must visit for all tourists specially non-muslims as there is a tour guide that will take you around the mosque and talk about its grandeur and the faith.
  • Must visit place in Bahrain. It is open for Non- Muslims too till 4. One feels spiritually enlightened after coming out of this Mosque.
  • A very beautiful site. I was very happy to experience this place. The staff was courteous.
  • Wonderful place... Any people can come here and c everything,.... There are volunteers to give the visitors a brief description about Islam...
