  • There are more than thirty mosques in the city, including the largest of El Mina. In pre-announced groups, tourists also have the freedom to take photos in addition to the time of prayer. Before entering the mosque, the ladies have to rent clothes for 1 euro, covering the hair and the whole body. Men do not need such A thing. But the shoes need to be discarded, barefoot or in socks, it is only allowed to walk on the green carpet. As the perception of Islam worldwide is controversial, two free-to-take bookbrushes have been created for visitors in twenty languages – in Hungarian! The "short, capable guide to Understanding Islam" and "Women in Islam" is indeed an interesting reading.

  • The mosque was gorgeous and huge with beautiful artefacts and decorations. Had a chance to go for jumma prayer to mosque while on vacation and felt blessed. A view at night was also amazing.  more »

  • Abutting the clouds minarets of the new golden mosque of Al Mina in Hurghada. the colorful smell of the fish market located nearby, right outside the walls of the mosque. The bustle of the eastern bazaar in the neighborhood of pacifying serenity and devotion to the Almighty. Places are required to visit anyone who wants to understand the spirit of this Hurghada.
  • Best to bring covering clothes for the ladies, they are provided by the staff however. But not at all times, apparently. The inside is not spectacular. Staff is friendly and helpful. Guest are approached by what seems to be missionaries
