    Very pleasant experience
    We visited this mosque and it was well worth it. Of course like in any mosque in the Gulf region they require the women to wear abbaya or Islam appropriate clothes. Here, they are very friendly and you can choose your own abbaya from the variety they have. Each abbaya is dry cleaned after singly use. Great service. Also we were greeted by the reception by a very friendly girl who had a smile on her face and showed us to the waiting area where we could seat and wait for our guide. Our guide Mehdi ( by the way , he was a volunteer) was a very knowledgeable, older gentleman, who knew a lot about Islam, mosque, etc. and spoke several languages. Very impressive. All the above mentioned things made our experience very pleasant acne unforgettable.

    Got bored here by the long talk re Islam!
    Having recently visited mosques in Morocco, Egypt and Jordan, I got bored here by the long explanation about the Islamic religion. Most of the tours I had attended in other countries, the guides simply talked about the mosques themselves such as dates constructed, materials used , etc and then I was let go to move around the mosques and take photos. This was not the case here! Took some pictures here of the chandeliers, ceiling area, wood panels, etc. before hurrying to meet my driver waiting outside. Returned the abaya to the Reception Area. Note that toilet facilities are located outside, near the Parking Area.

    Mosque and Islamic Center
    Its other name is the Al Fateh Mosque or the Great Mosque. At the Reception area, we were told to wear tne abaya, men did the same. took off our shoes as we entered the mosque. Tne guide breifly talked about the construction of the mosque. We then were told to sit down and explanations about how Muslims pray, prayers, Islam religion, etc. The presentation lasted about 30 minutes. Briefly took some pictures inside the mosque before leaving.

    Very informative tour
    A lovely mosque with some amazing features such as the chandelier. Not as big or as grand as Abu Dhabi, but definitely worth a visit. The guide gives lots of information about the mosque and the Islam faith which was very interesting and informative. Definitely on the “To Do” list when in Bahrain.

    Beautiful mosque
    The only mosque in Bahrain open for non muslims. It is one of the largest mosques in the world. Free guided tour was provided. They also provide Abayas for women. It is open for tours from 9am-4pm except Fridays.

    A visit to the mosque in Bahrain.
    Alhamdulillah, during my maiden visit to the KIngdom of Bahrain, I had the chance to visit this grand mosque as one of the stops with a city tour that we were on. Did a small prayer in the main hall and joined the rest of the entourage for the tour conducted by volunteers in the mosque. Was really impressed with the tour given, as not only did the guide explained to us the history of the mosque, but he also shared a bit of knowledge on the religion of islam, how muslims pray and etc. A brief explanation, just enough to share an introduction of the religion which was insightful even for me being a muslim!

    A must!
    Stunning. A must. Well looked after. Beautiful building inside and outside. Don't worry if you are not correctly dressed, they will give you something to cover up inside. We had a guided tour lasting around twenty minutes which was very good. The guide gave us a lot of useful information on the mosque and Islam. I am Muslim myself but learnt a lot from him. After the tour, we could walk around ourselves and take photographs. Closed every Friday. Footwear must be removed before entering.

A block style mosque of solid feeling looks. Peaceful inside. Organised for tours. Separate areas for washing and toilets.

The only mosque open for public tour. The tours are free, 10-15th said into Muslim religion, I have more respect for this religion now. The mosque is mesmerising. It’s in downtown and a must to do list in Manama.
