  • The largest mosque in Kuwait and the 8th largest in the world. Takes 11 000 people at the same time inside and almost the same amount outside to pray. Construction started in 1979 and was finished in 1985. Taking a free guided tour is very recommended. You can learn a lot about the history of the Mosque, Islam and Kuwait.
  • This was really educational. The guide Solaman was really helpful and took us round the Grand Mosque and explained everything in detail. Would recommend if visiting Kuwait to make the Grand Mosque a must see. Really good.
  • Beautiful place. But I wonder why its mostly closed these days.
  • The intricate design of the Islamic geometric patterns on the walls, ceilings with an addition of arabic calligraphy is captivating.
  • Went there for a tour a few years ago as well as to see sheikh Mishary. Great mosque and amazing atmosphere!
