The beracha of hagomel needs to be said in the presence of a minyan. It is good to have at least two Hachamim among the ten people. The custom is to say it in shul in front of the Torah since there is always a minyan present. There is an opinion which states that a woman may say hagomel in the presence of nine other women and one man, instead of the ten men needed for a normal minyan. However, the Shulhan Aruch teaches otherwise and one may not differ. The beracha of hagomel may be said at night but some people say it only during the day.
