A visit to Ahmed Al Fateh Islamic Center allows you to admire the country’s largest mosque, and one of the largest in the world, dedicated to the founder of Bahrain. Over 7,000 people can worship here at one time thanks to the mosque's large surface area of 6,500 sq m (1,60 ac). The best way to explore and learn is to take a guided tour--available in several languages--which will lead you through the complex and tell you more about the history and customs of the area.

  • Here is a huge library with all books about Islam. It also speaks right here. For example a marriage between Muslim and other faithful must be decided here.

  • Nothing particularly outstanding building, but in the complex with a large mosque you can visit this center of Islam with a library for general development.
