    Beautiful mosque
    We very much enjoyed our visit to King Abdullah mosque. A very beautiful building. Well worth the 2 dinar entry. A fairly long walk from anything else apart from the parliament building.

    Blue mosaic dome is spectacular
    King Abdullah Mosque is a large mosque. It was built between 1982 and 1989. It's known for its blue mosaic dome, which is quite spectacular. There is usually no problem gaining entrance, unless it's prayer time.

    Beautiful Mosque
    This beautiful mosque offers easy access to men and women. For 2 JD they provide an abaya that you can wear over to enter the vast mosque complex. There’s a well stocked souvenir and gift shop too with English- speaking staff

    Beautiful Mosque and Shop
    You enter through a shop where they give you a robe to cover up if needed. You then go up stairs to the outside of the Mosque. The facade and blue dome are beautiful, with a big outside area to walk around. We also went inside the mosque which, while not ornate or large, was peaceful and beautiful. When you leave, you go back through the shop where the workers give you tea and do try to sell you a bit to make a purchase. They do have beautiful stuff that is hand made and worth the money if you want a souvenir to bring home such has hand painted ceramics or mosaics.

    Simply Beautiful- Add to your itinerary!
    Visited here while on a tour but this was not in our itinerary. 3 of our group visited on our own. Magnificent architectural design, a peaceful beautiful mosque and feel blessed that it is open to non Muslim visitors. Should be included as one of the special places of Amman to visit. A small museum is attached to the mosque which is also very interesting and well worth the visit too.

    Had my “BEST” photo taken here.
    The taxi driver took me here and we entered through a huge store selling tourist-related items. The English speaking staff told me that I had to wear an abaya to enter the mosque. Next to the store is a small museum where the employee gave me some papers explaining about the mosque. Decorations inside the mosque are plain and simple, nothing to write home about. I did not see the ladder where the Imman talks and sings. Noted a young man taking photo of his friend while lying down on the floor. I requested him to take a photo of me the same way. Results were impressive, photos include me ( wearing an abaya for the first time) and the beautiful chandeliers and ceiling as well!

    the King Abdullah I Mosque is a jewel in Amman's crown
    Upon stepping into the mosque, one immediately feels a tangible sense of tranquility and spirituality. The expansive prayer hall, adorned with intricate carpets and graceful chandeliers, emanates a calm atmosphere. Abundant natural light streams through the large windows, fostering a serene ambiance that encourages moments of reflection and contemplation. The interior design harmoniously merges traditional Islamic artistry with modern elements, resulting in a space that possesses a timeless yet contemporary feel.

    Nice mosque, greedy gift shop
    Mosque is worth a look (although locals call it “the blue mosque” this is not the famous Blue Mosque in Istanbul). On the way in, you'll be required to wear a covering robe, for all females and men in shorts. On the way out, turn in your robe and then *run* right through the exorbitantly priced, high-pressure gift shop. The salespeople are really friendly and hard to avoid. I bought a pretty little painted dish for way too much money - when I got home, I saw a “handmade” sticker on the bottom. Peeled it off, and underneath it said “Made in China.” So frustrating. Really soured the experience. At least the money goes to a good cause (or so the salesperson said…..)

Moderately interesting mosque if someone stark. Some lovely carpeting and paintwork, but otherwise only visit if you are going past.

As always with mosques, often spectacular from outside and alwayswide empty prayer space inside. This one is no exception but is pretty imprestive, so you may dedicate a few minutes to it.
