  • Great mosque, great culture beside being a mosque. But as well a culture center and library to show the history and future of Bahrain  more »
  • Kind of neat for touristy stuff but there really isn't that much to see. You see some neat architecture. I would only go if I liked the culture and style. Which I do not.  more »

  • I am not the religion being practiced here, but someone there walked me through their religion and prayers and I now have a better understanding of their faith, prayers, worship, and beliefs. Thanks for teaching and welcoming me!
  • Masha Allah..One of the most peaceful place in Bahrain and ever I feel...salute to the government and mosque associations for managing the cleanliness and order. Anyone can come here from any part of the world to feel the peace of mind and soul..Love this place in Bahrain🤲😘🤗
