Beautiful traditional mosque. Prayed Thursday evening Maghreb prayer and it was nice. Lots of shopping nearby and easy to get an Uber anywhere you want to go from here
There is a gentleman inside with a blue T-shirt who came to me and gave some advice about the masjid, very nice guy.
Would love to visit again

5 stars for the mosque view inside and out. We did Jummah here, and it was very impressive. The Wudhu area could do with some modernisation, but overall, it was adequate for ablution. Be careful as there are street beggers that linger outside.

What a magnificent building, you do have to wear appropriate clothing to enter as a women and you can put the dress on site for a small fee (30 Egyptian pounds - pence really).
Educational pamphlets inside, you must remove your shoes but an experience.

I was in Hurghada for a family beach resort holiday. I decided to go for Jummah (Friday) prayers at El Mina mosque. Both inside and out are absolutely amazing.

The outside has a big open courtyard where you can grab great views and photos of the beautiful domes and minarets. On the inside the architecture and design are breathtaking, such incredible detail!

The adhan (call to prayer) was the best adhan I have ever heard in my life. The khutbah (sermon) was entirely in Arabic so I did not understand but the imam spoke with such passion that I was completely engaged. The prayers that followed the khutbah felt so nice standing brother to brother in large numbers in such a beautiful mosque; it was an enhanced spiritual experience.

For non-Muslims visiting, try to visit between prayers so that you can go inside. You will be warmly welcomed as long as you are modestly dressed. You will be allowed to take lots of photos and videos inside.

If you’re in Hurghada this is a must see sight!!

El Mina Mosque, or the so-called Heavenly Mosque, is one of the most famous and most beautiful mosques in the governorate of the Red Sea in terms of architecture. Al Mina (or El Mina) Mosque was first built in 1968. However, recently the old building was replaced by a modern one. The construction of the new building started in 2006. In comparison, the government officially opened this new building in 2012, and it can accommodate 9000-10000 worshipers.The beautiful mosque is located in the heart of Hurghada, right next to Hurghada Marina and the Hurghada Shipyard. The Mosque was built out of pure white marble. This impressive building has two magnificent minarets, each about 40-metres high. Also, the facades of the building are decorated with traditional, oriental ornaments and carvings. The interior of the mosque is magnificent, the inner hall is richly decorated, with magnificent chandeliers hanging elegantly from the ceiling, complex arches, carved and engraved walls and a dome 25 meters high. It is open for visitors daily from 9.00-17.00 (except the praying times). The entrance is free.

We came here in late afternoon. It is a very nice mosque to look at with its many domes. We could only view from the outside as it was prayer time. It is still worthy the visit and the fish market is nearby so combine a visit to the two.
