Surrounded by important buildings such as Ministry of Justice, the Parliament, and the Ministry of Education is a building more important still. It is the country's foremost mosque, a grand and opulent building with a beautiful blue dome inscribed with verses from the Quran, beneath which 7000 people may pray at a time. It was completed in 1989. There are two other sections, one for 500 women worshippers and another far smaller and closure resume for Royal patronage. Apparently this is the only mosque in the country which openly welcomes non-muslim visitors. You will find an Islamic Museum inside with artifacts related to the late King Abdullah I. There may also be some archaeological artifacts.
