spiral mosque in doha - qatar


The spiral mosque of the Kassem Darwish Fakhroo Islamic Centre is a recent construction – It has become in a few years one of Doha’s most famous landmarks. This is not a traditional Qatari mosque but a replica of the Great Mosque of Al-Mutawwakil in Samarra in Iraq. It is located in Souqs area (Close to Souq Waqif) a stone throw from the Corniche Street. The spiral minaret dominating the old city is enlightened at night.
The Qatar Mosque is a part of a large building – The Qatar Islamic Cultural Center aiming at explaining Islam to non Muslim foreigners. In addition to the mosque it also includes a department store and a cultural center with permanent exhibition detailing the basics of Islam. Guided visits – tours – of the mosque can be arranged there.;
