  • The Mosque is a distinguished one. It is located in an important spot in Amnan, where many citizens walk, so they can stop and pray during the pray time. It is well designed built . As the sky blue color shown clearly on the top
  • The mosque is among the biggest and most modern in this part of the world. It's amazing that it's one of the few mosques that allows non-muslim visitors. It was also our first visit in such a temple which was fascinating. it's famous for it's big blue dome. It kind of reminds of Scheherazade and her 1001 nights. 🙂
  • The mosque is beautiful, open for all visitors. The entrance is 2 JD. Foreign women are required to wear black dresses that you get at the entrance and it's free. The mosque looks great both from the inside and outside.
  • A very spiritual place to visit. For tourism, you should enter from the tourist entrance to get covered (for females) and to pay entrance fees (2jds per person). I recommend to visit between 12:00-3:00pm
  • It is a beautiful and grand mosque. Very welcoming to western visitors. They have robes to cover if your clothing is not enough coverage for inside the mosque. They also have a women's only area. It was beautiful. You can have tea afterwards with the staff afterwards. Must see in Amman
