  • This is the largest mosque in the country of UAE situated in Abu Dhabi. It is capable of accommodating 40 000 people. There are loads to see at this mosque with restaurants and souvenir stores outside. Inside the mosque is very beautiful and unique with rich interior. Women are provided with clothing upon entrance. No cigarettes and lighters are allowed into the mosque( there is a security check point prior to entering). You are required to take off your shoes before entering at certain points within the mosque. As majority of tourists stay in Dubai, they are required to drive a couple hours to Abu Dhabi to see the mosque. Definitely worth the drive and it is a popular tourist attraction for a reason. Just be respective at all times as you are in a place of worship. Once you are done visiting the mosque, before you head back for the long drive to Dubai. There is a near by shopping center you can stop by for some refreshments as well as Ferrari World.

  • A beautiful, Grand and magnificent Mosque. A commendable creation and impeccable architecture. The outside view of the mosque is picturesque. I got reminded of my childhood reveries of Arabian-nights once I had a glance of the mosque. A must-visit place while on tour to Dubai or Abu Dhabi. There is also an eating joint inside the mosque.It was a dream-like experience being there
  • One of the most beautiful Mosque ever! A clean and simple designed place of worship, every angle of this mosque is different and just as amazing! Best time to come is just before sunset, the temperature settles down and the whole mosque just feels different. Calm, mellow and soothing. All your senses are taken to another level when the sound of prayers are played through massive speakers at the top of the mosque. This was worth visiting from Dubai, and hopefully I will be able to visit again!
  • Imagine if they converted Aladdin’s castle into a white marble mosque and you’d get closer to understanding how magical and beautiful this marvellous creation is! Words struggle to describe the chandeliers which sparkle like the brightest star. The handwoven carpets are simply the master craft of the world’s best tradesmen - undeniably incredible
