Non-Muslim visitors are welcome to step inside the King Abdullah I Mosque. If you are not Muslim, take this opportunity to explore the stunning artwork inside, as well as the blue and gold hues of the magnificent ceiling.
The King Abdullah I Mosque was finished in 1989 and was built by King Hussein as a memorial to his grandfather. Though the King Abdullah I Mosque can fit thousands of people inside for prayer, it is actually no longer Amman’s most used mosque. While it can be used for prayer, it is also a tribute to the area’s culture and history and houses an art gallery filled with pottery and engravings. Appreciate the incredible skill that went into creating the mosque as you admire the ornate detailing of its interior.
As you discover the King Abdullah I Mosque, look for the smaller sections apart from the main praying space. One of these has space for 500 female worshippers, while the other is reserved for the royal family. Take a moment to take photos of the impressive exterior too, which features distinctive geometric shapes and a symmetrical design.
Some of the details included in the design of the mosque include decorative Quranic inscriptions in the tiles. Look up and you will see a stunning golden circle in the middle of the interior dome, with rays like the sun’s spreading out to the edge of the building. The lights inside are also arranged in a circular pattern.
Walk around and see the pictures of King Abdullah I of Jordan, the mosque’s namesake, and admire the artifacts housed in beautiful displays. There is also a gift store where you can buy souvenirs such as plates, bowls, books and clocks.
Opening hours for non-praying visitors are from Saturday to Thursday. Wear a headscarf to cover your hair if you are a woman, along with a black full-length dress to cover your arms and legs. Men should have long pants on. All shoes must be removed before entering the mosque.
