The Al-Fateh Mosque (also known as Al-Fateh Islamic Center & Al-Fateh Grand Mosque) in Manama, located adjacent to the King Faisal Highway in Juffair, is one of the world’s largest mosques, with capacity to accommodate about 7000 worshippers at a time. Apart from being a place of worship, the mosque is also one of the prime tourist attractions in Bahrain.

The huge dome built atop the Al-Fateh Mosque is made of pure fiberglass, and weighs nearly 60,000kg. The Mosque now includes the new National Library which opened to public in 2006. It was built by late Sheikh Isa ibn Salman Al Khalifa in 1987, and is named after Ahmed Al Fateh, the conqueror of Bahrain.

The Al Fateh Mosque Bahrain remains open to visitors on daily basis, but visitors are not permitted inside the Mosque during prayer time. The Mosque also houses the Religious Institute for Islamic Affairs.
