It is far to my knowledge is the biggest mosque in qatar and it follows an original mosque design that is located infront of souq walid. It has a very nice architectural styling and is made with care and attention to details with superior attention to maintenance and clean. It is a calm place flooded with side windows natural daylighting... More

This is a very impressive and grand mosque. It is not fanciful, simply solid architecture. Not extravagant, just grand. Visitors should avoid certain times and they are strict about dress code for women. It is worth visiting. There are few grand mosques in Doha and they should not be confused.

Not as I was expecting, still very large and nice, but nothing waw too. It is very far from anything by walk, and finding a taxi afterward is hard, if you are in Doha just for 1 day like I was, I would say it may not be worth it

Our family visited the Mosque. The place was almost empty (Sunday afternoon). Men and women were instructed to different sections of the Mosque and my wife used hijab for the first time of her life to get in. The youngest daughter, 8-year-old, was not allowed to get in so she waited outside of the womens section. Very impressive building. The... More

If I had one word to describe the State Grand Mosque (Abdul Wahab Mosque), it would be "Remarkable". I have been to this mosque many times, but every time it feels the same as I felt the first time. It's beautiful architecture is simply mesmerizing. If you are in Doha, this should most definitely be a place to visit. The... More

This mosque definitely competes with the Blue Mosque in Istanbul (Turkey) with respect to size and architecture. At night its illumination is spectacular. The comments in tourist guides about its beauty etc. are correct and certainly noy exaggerated.
