  • Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center is a Great place to see wonderful structures, designs and hospitality  more »
  • came here especially by sunset, amazing impressions of architecture, and it was great to see the mosque both in the daytime and at night, there were amazing photos at sunset. It was interesting to listen to the mullah singing, a beautiful and strong voice! wonderful experience of contact with another culture.

  • Very big mosque with a very unique design of architecture. Bus stop available in the mosque and too many bus routes come to this bus stop, so it's easy to visit the mosque. Yes you can visit the mosque with your family and friends and take a memorable picture and excellent experience. Taxi available and car parking available too. Ritz Carlton hotel is opposite the mosque if you want to stay close to the mosque. Other hotels available too because the mosque location is very good and in the center of the city of Abu Dhabi . All the best to you all and I wish you a very good time here
  • Most beautifully breathtaking place in our wonderful United Arab Emirates. Words cannot describe the overwhelming energy, inspiring spirituality and humbling tranquility of this Mosque. The intricate artwork, perfection of design and elaborate decoration make the Grand Mosque one of the finest in the world. Initiated by the greatest leader or all times, the wonderful Sheikh Zayed, it remains a tribute to his vision, love for his land and people and infinite wisdom and generosity. It is also his final resting place....
  • Beautiful and they also provided a tram to take you around which was nice considering the place was huge. The staff were informative and helpful. The process of passing though security was quick and easy. They do recommend to be covered but offer cloths to cover up so that was nice. Pictures here were breath taking.
  • The mosque is well worth a visit, which I did as part of a quick city tour during a 6 hour wait at the airport for another flight. After you pass through the security tent you are witness to an amazing piece of architecture. The stonework, glass work , carpets etc have to be seen to be believed. Photographs do not do the scale of this place justice. The cool marble floors offer relief on hot days. There is a golf cart service to the entrance from security, to avoid sweating too much in the heat and woman are supplied necessary clothing to visit this religious site.
  • This place is so beautiful and picturesque. Architecture of the building is great. Everything is so smooth for the visitors. Management is friendly and cooperative. Great interior work and design. Everything about this place is simply amazing. Loved my time there. Highly recommended for the tourists in Abu Dhabi.
