Kuwait is an iconic Middle Eastern nation replete with splendid examples of Islamic grandeur that are a true treat to experience when you’re in the country. Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, the city offers a range of quality Kuwait hotels guaranteed to cater to every whim to make a stay here truly memorable. The Al-Jahra Copthorne Hotel & Resort is a luxury Kuwait resort that presents an excellent, central option for accommodation in Kuwait. Whilst in the city, dedicate at least a day to visit and savour some of the world’s most resplendent tributes to the Islamic faith. The Grand Mosque is Kuwait’s official mosque, which encompasses around 20,000 square feet, which can accommodate around 10,000 men and 950 women in a separate hall. It also houses an impressive collection of Islamic reference materials. Its iconic minaret on the northwest corner of the building employs elegant Andalusian influences.
The As-Sadeeqa Fatimatul Zahra Mosque is slowly gaining fame as the country’s most distinctive landmarks, as it has been built to resemble the iconic Taj Mahal in Delhi, India. Located close to the airport, it is a majestic white image set against the golden desert, and it is clearly visible to visitors flying in. A reinterpretation of traditional mosque architecture can be found at the unique pyramid-shaped Ras Salmiya mosque set within the majestic backdrop of the Arabian Sea. Although the country is home to many exquisite places of Islamic worship, these mosques are some of the most iconic and must be explored.
