I always enjoy visiting mosques when in the Middle east. They are always tranquil, cool & cavernous. And the State Grand Mosque in Doha is no different. I loved walking along the hugh carpet looking at the chandelier & architecture. Always worth a stop.

One of the most beautiful mosques I have ever visited. Give yourself plenty of time when you visit as you would want to appreciate the interior design and the architecture of this Qatari landmark!

Everyone was very polite and accomodating and yes women are welcome but must enter from the women's entrance and must wear the appropriate clothing that is supplied. Lovely.
