  • A grand structure all in white! This place was amazing right from the gates. We drove I to the underground parking and walked through the mall filled with the scent of cinnamon. Then to the changing rooms for more befitting attire before getting the tickets (free) for our access. I was in awe from the get go, marvelled by the mosaics, the chandeliers and the sheer vastness of the mosque. It's a beautiful place!
  • A gorgeous mosque with incredible architecture. The rooms are all enormous and the chandeliers are so intricate. Come even if you're not religious - It's a very peaceful place to walk around and observe. They'll provide clothes for you if you don't have the proper clothing. Highly recommended to come as the sun is going down and look at the lights at night.
  • This place was gorgeous. One of the nicest mosques I have seen. They provide clothing for men and women who aren't dressed to standard.they even make you go through a coin museum showing how their coins changed and originated. The mosque is so unique. The carpet, chandelier, stone flowers , and even their carpet ! A must see . Beautiful .
  • Absolutely beautiful well worth a visit. I went at night and it was stunning. Women have to cover up but they provide you with what to wear.... brilliant
  • The UAE's largest and most beautiful place of worship doesn't disappoint any of us and with tourists traveling from around the globe to enter in, it's no surprise that millions of people come to there. It was an nice experience at Sheikh zayed Mosque. Clean & calm. The white colour which i loved the most. Ans the designs are pretty❤️ the night view is good. The lights shows the beauty of the mosque. 😊
