This mosque definitely competes with the Blue Mosque in Istanbul (Turkey) with respect to size and architecture. At night its illumination is spectacular. The comments in tourist guides about its beauty etc. are correct and certainly noy exaggerated.

This won't knock your socks off like the Blue Mosque or the one in Abu Dhabi but it is a nice experience and it is always fun to put on an abaya for a bit (which they provide) as well as head covering. The visit can be fairly brief. Staff were informative and it was not crowded.

A nice mosque. The mosque has a english speaking guide who walks you around and answers your questions. As a lady make sure to go covered. Not all parts of the mosque are finished.

An absolute highlight of Doha. The architecture is simple but very elegant. The sheer size of the interior marble ablution facilities and magnificent prayer room are stunning, with nine huge beautifully-carved wooden doors. The spiritual power is immense.

Definitely a place to visit when in Doha. Stunning architecture and a beautiful interior make this well worth a visit. Don't go on Fridays , Muslims only.

If you take your lady, be sure to also take a head covering, or she will not be permitted entry. Go inside and explore - very nice

After been in Doha for a year now, my husband and I decided it was time to learn more about the Islamic culture and signed up for a tour to the mosque. The guide was very informative and was happy to answer all our questions. We even stayed and observed the evening prayers in the mens section of the mosque.... More

One of the largest mosques of Doha, this place has a majestic architecture, nice lighting, a fantastic view of the beach and above all a very friendly parking place. For once you just remain spellbound with the fine architecture inside and the serenity that prevails. Just love this place. It is open for tourists also but not during prayer timings.
