Not only is the State Grand Mosque a place of worship, but it is also one of Qatar’s most popular tourist destinations. Traditional and contemporary architecture combine in this culturally significant location.

It exemplifies Islamic architectural tradition with its graceful arches and straight lines. During the scorching summer months, worshipers are kept cool by the earth-colored marble flooring and the corridors that are covered in miniature domes. The mosque has 93 domes, all of which shine brilliantly at night from a variety of perspectives.

Because of its size, it can accommodate more than 30,000 worshippers at once. Tourists are welcome to enter the mosques at any time, but it’s best to do so when no prayers are being said. There are three libraries in the Grand Mosque, as well as separate prayer rooms for men and women and rooms just for memorizing the Quran.
