King Abdullah Mosque was built by King Hussein bin Talal to honor his grandfather King Abdullah I. The building of the mosque is designed very thoughtfully with its spectacular blue color dome 35 meters in diameter on top of the mosque. The mosque can fill up to 7000 worshippers with another courtyard that can fit in 3000 worshippers more. The golden lines that are around the dome on the base show 99 names of Allah (swt). Inside the mosque is also a small section for women worshippers. As per Islamic ritual, women and men cannot sit together to pray which is why there is a small section for them separately. Any women that enters the mosque whether Muslim or non Muslim has to have their head cover with scarf which can also be purchased from outside of the mosque.
Inside the museum there also a small Islamic museum which has pottery pieces, coins, stone engravings, and photographs of King Abdullah I during his reign. The entrance to the mosque is off course free, but to the museum there are specific timings and fee that applies. Many tourists enjoy visiting this mosque because of its friendly welcome and the historic museum that holds many valuable items. The interior of mosque is covered with carpet which is very comfortable to walk on barefoot because no shoes are allowed in the mosque. The lightening during night time outside the mosque makes it stand out in the entire city ofz
