Create an itinerary including Khamis Mosque
The Khamis Mosque (Arabic: مَسْجِدُ ٱلْخَمِيسِ; transliterated: Masǧid al-ḫamīs) is believed to be the first mosque in Bahrain, built during the era of the Umayyad caliph Umar II. According to Al Wasat journalist Kassim Hussain, other sources mention that it was built in a later era during the rule of Uyunids with one minaret. The second was built two centuries later during the rule of Usfurids.
The identical twin minarets of this ancient Islamic monument make it easily noticeable as one drives along the Shaikh Salman Road in Khamis.

  • this is the oldest Mosque in Bahrain, as we understood, but is basically a ruin. Appreciate the historical significance but kept other expectations low.

  • From an information plaque in the 'visitor center'. The Al-Khamis mosque is the oldest extant mosque in Bahrain, and as such has a very special identity on the islands. The buildings we see today...

  • One of the best historical landmarks in Bahrain , a must visit tourist place , its the oldest Mosque in Bahrain and one of the best tourist locations. A must visit for photography lovers to capture some nice historical architecture.Such a beautiful, historic gem in the middle of Bahrain. We went during the day and it was hot and humid and we were the only people there. We didn’t spend more than 20 minutes there but we absolutely loved it.
  • It was hooooot, but worth the visit. They have a small exhibit room and facilities fully arconditioned if you needed a break from the heat. There wasn't much to see because it was being repaired when we visited. We didn't enter the temple itself because no one was there to guide us. It is free to visit and explore
