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.Before you head to Manama, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Manama road trip website, to make sure you see all that Manama has to offer, including Khamis Mosque.

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

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
