Not only did we get to appreciate the majestic building and the magnificent interior, we... More

When I arrived at the admission point I asked to go in. I showed the security people my passport. I was told I could not go in and not given any explanation.... More

This is the place to know more Islam and Islamic history, Kuwait, common traditions and festivities. A great place for worshippers during the holy month of Ramadhan. The mosque has many tour guides, Arabs and westerners who are welcoming groups from all directions of the land and taking them on tours through the mosque. I believe it's a good place... More

2 stars for the access. I tried twice to reach but it was very difficult for me to find the right parking lot then to find the right entrance to the mosque. unfortunately it was surrounded by streets and by the financial buildings.

Unfortunately, this part of Kuwait City is undergoing huge development, therefore reaching the mosque is not as easy as before. In the future if you decide to visit the mosque please do use the...
