Edinburgh Central Mosque & Islamic Centre is officially known as the King Fahd Mosque and Islamic Centre of Edinburgh. It stands on the corner of Potterow, Crichton Street and Chapel Street, not far from The Meadows and Buccleuch and Greyfriars Freechurch of Scotland.

The Edinburgh Central Mosque was designed by Basil Al-Bayati and took over 6 years to complete, opening in 1998. It is built facing Mecca and the building incorporates both Islamic and Scottish elements. The mosque cost £3.5m with 90% of the cost being met by King Fahad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia.

Within Edinburgh Central Mosque is a main hall capable of holding 1000 men, with a women's balcony built overlooking it. The building also contains separate Ablution rooms for men and women, a library and a mosque kitchen. Below the main hall (which is not accessible to non-Muslims) is a multi-purpose hall which is open to the public during the Islam Festival Edinburgh (or Discover Islam Exhibition) during the Edinburgh Festival.
