We figured we should check out the Al-Fatih Mosque seeing as though we were staying relatively close by. The closer we got to the magnificent structure, the more we were sure we had made the right call. The people were incredibly welcoming and supplied us with the appropriate clothes to enter the prayers area. An eye-opening experience and one that... More

A wonderful and a very spiritual experience, always open (ex Fridays) to foreigners, great guides - one of the best experiences in Bahrain - and a real eye-opener on Islam especially if you get to talk to the Imam.

Mostly they called it the Grand Mosque of Bahrain. The entrance is free. But please this is a reminder for non believers to please respect the place. Avoid wearing revealing clothes even there is abaya you need to wear before you enter the mosque. This is the place to worship God. Precautions also in taking pictures. This is a good... More

The architecture of one of the most magnificent places in the Middle East is astonishing. It is so sad that during the guided tour they only try to convert you to Islam instead of explaining something about the most and the religion.

I had a chance to visit this huge Mosque in Friday which was crowded. I like the design and fences. Huge parking is available.
