  • Incredible mosque. The 1 hour daily tours are fantastic and very good, you get to see a part of the Mosque not normally open to the public. The guide was very knowledgeable. Worth a visit to this very calm and serene place.
  • This is the most beautiful mosque I have ever seen. This is a world wonder. A must visit place for everyone. Each elements are crafted in magical elegance.
  • Absolutely beautiful! Calm, peaceful, was not very busy (mid may) so was nice to take my time and move about easily. Kept very clean, staff are helpful. Be aware there is a dress code but they provide you with the clothing. One of my favourites to visit in uae
  • Good visit while in Abu Dhabi. Such a stunning Mosque, I prayed Asr here. Relaxed around in the evening, very peaceful and calm. Trying to get home is a bit of hassle especially with the taxi queue. They should have some sort of a transport service to get you home quicker.
  • The most serene and beautiful mosque I have ever seen in my life. This is a grand structure, probably a world wonder. Extremely well crafted and superbly grand.
