Tours at the Grand Mosque

A couple of months back the Grand Mosque tours were reactivated again and this time they have a new permanent calligraphy exhibition featuring work by calligraphers from all over the world.

The tours are available by booking only for Saturdays at 10AM while walk-in tours are available on weekdays from 9AM to 11AM and then again 4PM to 6PM. UPDATED CHECK BELOW

In addition to regular Covid health instructions, there is also a dress code: no sleeveless shirts nor short shorts for men, and full-length cloaks and headscarves for women. If you’d like to book a tour you can contact Jenan on 22342367 or just head there during the middle of the week for the walk-in tours.

Here is the location on Google Maps.

Update: Saturday tours no longer require pre-booking, walk-in tours are now available on Saturdays as well.

Hello… Is the mosque open for visits this Saturday. I tried to call Jenan on 223423672 but the number is not available.

The number is 22342367 and not 223423672 (There is no “2” at the end). Hope it will be updated by the author 🙂


He must not have been aware because according to the tour organizers there is a tour today November 19 and on the 26 in English. This is based off a message I got from them on Wednesday.
