  • An amazing and must visit place for guys visiting Bahrain. The hospitality of the management here was remarkable. Everyone was nice to the visitors. They were offering traditional foods and drinks to the visitors and welcoming people every religion with open hearts. Islamic scholars were avaliable if anyone seeks some enlightenment. Volunteers were offering tour of the masjid. It was an amazing experience.
  • Stunning mosque. Absolutely beautiful. One of the best I have seen. Very peaceful. Plenty of parking. A must to pray in and visit in general.
  • A beautiful mosque. Compared to other mosques, such as the one in Abu Dhabi, it’s smaller, but still worth a visit. The tour guides will take you through, explaining the architecture of the structure, as well as the beliefs of the Muslim faith.
  • It is an attractive place to visit and experience the tranquillity and peace of your soul. An excellent tour guides who are very informative.
  • Beautiful mosque with a very grand look. The main hall has a lot of seating capacity with nice acoustics. The mimbar looked grand and beautiful. There was a coffee vending machine near the shoe rack that dispensed really good coffee at a great price!
