Grand Mosque, Kuwait City Overview

Located in the heart of the city, this mosque is known as the Al-Masjid Al-Kabir by the locals.

Kuwait's largest mosque, the Grand Mosque is known for its conventional Islamic architecture. The mosque is not as impressive from the outside, as it is from the inside, with a capacity of some 10,000 people! There are elements of Persian structural design characterized by a central dome, pointed arches and pillar arcades. As you enter you will be mesmerized by the blue and gold combination, the Andulasian style patterned tiles and ornamental calligraphy. The dome of the mosque is engraved with the Asma al-hosna, the 99 names of God, as depicted by the Quran. The Amir's room which leads on from the prayer hall is not to be missed. Visitors must be attired conservatively, in loose fitting clothes preferably. Head scarves are available if you do not carry your own.
