  • It's a beautiful mosque with large parts both inside and out. There is a strict dress code for women especially so make sure you double check the details. Women are 'inspected' prior to going through ...  read more »

  • This is a beautiful and amazing religious building! When you visit it, you really feel connected with faith, no matter which religion you believe in. It's also an expensive construction and you can see luxury everywhere you look. If you go to Abu Dhabi, you really shouldn't miss this place!
  • Even if you only have an hour of free time in Abu Dhabi, board a taxi and rush to this place if you haven't seen it before. It has a lot of the same fabulous quality as Taj Mahal and has potential for becoming the Taj Mahal of the 21st century.
  • Majestic. I'll start with that, it's one of the most majestic place I've ever been, the architecture, time, and effort put into building this place and the tolerance of allowing random people to enter without asking for anything, nothing! I'm a catholic on paper and most christian places would ask you for "donation" which they can rake in a lot cash but here, no, you go there, borrow your kundura or abaya for free and enjoy the sights to behold. I truly respect the way it's managed and hope that this last for a very long time.
  • Simply stunning! A real landmark and a must have seen in the region. Go for the free audio guide! The tour takes around an hour but is really worth the time.
  • Spectacular sight! Splendid Architecture! Great Masterpiece! Have visited this place thrice and would still love to visit it for its Beauty. A Must visit to this place if you are in UAE........Wallahi Beautiful!
