I only had limited time, but they fitted me in before closing. You can't see on your own so guide looks after you. Was only really interested in the architecture, but he waffled on and on about islam and prayers, which not bothered about.

It was very early morning on a Friday and I thought it would be closed but the one or two locals there allowed me in. I sat quietly and watched on. Very quiet times. Walked around on my own.

the mosque is not the most spectacular, however, I was offered a personal tour by a Bahraini guide which was a real treat. His knowledge and English was impeccable. I really enjoyed his open-mindedness: we also talked about culture, politics. I particularly enjoyed that he did not want to convert me . Excellent experience!

By far one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture I have ever seen. The workmanship is awesome and the opportunity to experience the beauty of the chandeliers and amazing mosaics was a once in a life time experience.
