  • This mosque is very symbolic for Qatar and is worth a visit. I'm surprised the grandeur, chandeliers and huge carpets in Arab style. As usual, women can only enter the mosque with appropriate costumes, like the abaya, which is available for use on site. The beautiful portals render beautiful pictures with the city in the background.

  • I went to perform prayers during Ramadan period, well maintained and nice location. nothing to worry about parking at all they have huge parking space near the mosque.  more »
  • Is one of the most important mosques of the city and the country, very beautiful and far away from the tourist area. The heat outside can be inclement, then make sure that you are going in a proper time. It is not permitted to take pictures with camera inside the mosque and men and women must enter in different gates.
