Al Saleh Mosque, Sanaa

#4 of 7 in Things to do in Sanaa
See Qurani verses carved into the stone walls of Al Saleh Mosque. The fusion of architectural styles, which they call Himyarite architecture, highlights the massiveness of the mosque while the combination of black, red, and white limestone, represents its significance. The main dome with wooden ornate roof is 39 m (about 127 ft) tall, and its minarets stand over 100 m (328 ft). Inside you'll see chandeliers with floral motifs as well as classrooms and libraries where students can study. The place is completely secure; you may even witness bomb-sniffing dogs.

  • Simply breathtaking! I HIGHLY recommend visiting the Grand Mosque in SANAA. The interior of the mosque is probably the most impressive I have ever seen. The quality and attention to detail is incredible. I highly recommend taking the free public live guided tour which gives you exclusive access to the mosque vs just doing it yourself. On the tour you get to enter the main prayer room which affords you much better picture opportunities. Don’t miss this world wonder! Simply breathtaking!
