About King Abdullah I Mosque

Built by King Hussein as a memorial to his grandfather, King Abdullah, this mosque is the only one in Jordan open to non-Muslims. It is a mosque with both religious sentiment and architectural aesthetics, and it rises into a magnificent 35 m blue dome decorated with Quranic inscriptions.

It is large enough to accommodate as many as 7,000 worshippers, with the courtyard alone being big enough for 3,000 (including a smaller space for up to 500 women). There is a special prayer room for the royal family.

Must See

  • The blue dome standing tall, mirroring the exquisite architecture of the mosque is certainly awe-striking.
  • The walls of the mosque are camouflaged by the regal calligraphy of the Quranic inscriptions
