  • Made with a beautiful architecture is worth a try ... Apart from receiving fees from visiting Muslims

  • Beautiful lady in blue, with the absolutely impressive dome. The inside looks pretty much like every other mosque, but still worth seeing.  more »
  • I didn't get to visit the mosque of King Abdullah, but stopped to photograph the outside, because I was not indifferent to their blue domes. Has interesting details, but having been built in the 20th century, does not have the grandeur of other I saw in Casablanca, Istanbul or Cairo.

  • Very beautiful mosque with chess board design. A local told us very interesting story about the mosque about 2 friends one following Islam & the other Christianity. Their disagreement resulted in the building of this mosque as per the local.
  • Non Muslim women can get Burkha or Obbaya at the shop below the Mosque. The Charges are 3 JD each. ( or approx 300 Rs each for 20 to 30 minutes of wearing, which is quite costly ). The Toilets attached to the shops below the mosque are clean. As someone returns the Borkha or Obaya the girls in the shop insist to buy something. The things sold are very costly. The mosque is great. This is the only mosque in Amman where visitors can enter when Namaz or prayer is not happening.
  • One of the most amazing mosque in Jordan
  • The place is marvelous! One of the best sights in Amman and definitely is a must-visit
  • Beautiful mosque. Even non-Muslims can visit. Free Quran copies available.
