Great Mosque of Kufa, Kufa

4.5
#19 of 53 in Things to do in Iraq
Visit Great Mosque of Kufa, a site where people believe the Prophet Muhammed stopped before going to God. The mosque suffered most during Saddam Hussein's regime, as he closed it to avoid gatherings. See valuable decorations containing rubies, diamonds, gold, and silver. Inside the mosque you can see tiles and marble, the same as the ones in Mecca. Look carefully to see details, including verses from the Quran, on the walls inside. Both the interior and exterior achieve impressive architectural accomplishments.
