Mosques are the emblem of the Muslims’ wealth of architectural elegance. If you have been to well noted mosques, you cannot agree more. Take a few seconds to study their interior design. Some designs may look overly rich, but some mosques are plainly enchanting.

The Golden Mosque, Doha, belongs to the latter category. You do not have to be a Muslim to enjoy this mosque’s enchanting beauty. Anyone with an aesthetic sense will not fail to experience its architectural beauty. If you stay at Somerset West Bay Doha, one of the Doha Service Apartments, it is not far to reach the Golden Mosque.
The first impression as you enter the mosque’s premises is its spectacular structure. The Golden Mosque is located in Katara cultural village, West Bay, Doha. Katara cultural village is anyway famous among Doha-bound tourists. But on the web, the village does not have much place. But this is a place you shall never forget to visit. That is precisely because the village houses the Golden Mosque.

The Arabian peninsula is not short of competitive features. Every building has something extraordinary quality to boast of. Dubai has Burj Khalifa which soon became quite famous. Then Saudi Arabia has the world’s tallest tower in Jeddah. In such a backdrop Qatar’s Golden Mosque poses you no surprise.

But the mosque is not so big as you may imagine. It is a small place of worship. The interior is completely covered by gold tiles. Like any other mosque, the Golden Mosque too has a rounded minaret. It is difficult to take pictures inside the mosque, but you can give it a try. More than photographing take some time to study their aesthetically-rich interior with simple rugs and chandeliers.

The exterior is quite different. On the exterior the mosque looks almost the opposite of what it looks inside. All in all, you will realize this mosque, on the contrary to its name, is fairly simple and very much in line with Prophet Muhammad’s philosophy.
