Impressive building with a decent library. Facilities are pretty good and it is worth combining with a visit to the Grand Mosque.

The Grand mosque as they call it, is a beautiful structure with calm and serenity. In the midst of the busy capital area once you are in the mosque you are taken by the sheer grandeur of the structure. For non-Muslims who have never seen a mosque from within it’s a beautiful experience. They have guides who take you around... More

A Mosque, a cultural center and a great place to understand what tolerance is all about. It is a Must See attraction in the lovely Kingdom of Bahrain.

Definitely recommend a visit along with the mosque (note timings for visitors, and ladies will need a scarf or can borrow one). Enjoyed the simple yet warm feel of the architecture and ambiance. The ladies in the bookshop were fabulous, answering questions and as graceful ambassadors of the Islamic faith.

After a visit to Al Fateh Mosque, you should visit the Islamic Center. It is attached or in the same area. Specific timing for visitors, with proper dress mainly for ladies and can be guided in a short tour in the center. During my 15 minutes visit I saw many visitors.
