The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is now home to the world’s first 3D-printed mosque, located within the prestigious Al-Jawhara suburb project in Jeddah. Spanning an area of 5,600 square metres, the mosque was named after the late renowned Saudi equestrian Abdulaziz Abdullah Sharbatly.

The mosque was developed by Forsan Real Estate, with its contemporary and innovative construction spearheaded by Saudi businesswoman Wajnat Abdulwahed, who dedicated the mosque to her late husband. The construction process was completed within six months, utilising four advanced printers from Gunali, a Chinese company known globally for its 3D printing technology.

The project is part of the Saudi National Housing Company’s modern construction initiative. The initiative aims to promote architectural innovation and sustainable building practices, through integrating advanced technologies in construction methods for buildings across Saudi Arabia.
