Grand mosque will be a place of interest only for religious Muslims, otherwise there is no specific reason to see the building. It is an average mosque.

Lovely architecture in this mosque. Very peaceful and quaint. Lots of space to pray for women too. The security is not as tight as I thought it maybe however. Nevertheless would go again!

This grand mosque is the largest in Kuwait and it's interior is impressive. The mosque does do guided tours although I was lucky enough to perform my Friday prayers in this awesome structure well worth the visit if you have the time.
