The Grand Mosque of Kuwait, also known as Al-Masjid Al-Kabir, is the largest mosque in Kuwait and one of the largest mosques in the world. The mosque was completed in 1986 and is located in the heart of Kuwait City, near the Kuwait Towers.

The mosque was designed by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who is also famous for designing the Sydney Opera House. The mosque's design is a blend of Islamic and modern architecture, featuring a central dome, four minarets, and a large prayer hall that can accommodate up to 10,000 worshippers.

The mosque's interior is decorated with intricate Islamic calligraphy and features a large chandelier made of Swarovski crystals that weighs over 3 tons. The mosque's central dome is also adorned with beautiful Islamic patterns and is surrounded by 144 smaller domes.

The Grand Mosque of Kuwait is open to visitors of all faiths, although non-Muslims are not allowed to enter the prayer hall. However, visitors can explore the mosque's exterior and take guided tours to learn about its history and architecture.
