  • Small but full of history. Simple mosque that is situated on top of hill area. The mosque is still being used currently. It's the oldest mosque in the UAE.  more »
  • This was ok. This was visited as part of a greater tour. There was a level of interest but not sure it is worth going to on its own.  more »
  • It has been founded more than 700 years, is unique. Was a Fort and a mosque together so far. I was pretty full at a tiny mosque, worshippers and tourists in the Is a little climb is hard. I think you should bring water.

  • Bidiya Mosque: Ancient mosque in UAE. Constructed by using mud and stones. Without using concrete. Mortar mixture known as "surki" might be the strength of this monument. By the side of road, it gives a peaceful environment nicely maintained.
  • Al-Badiyah masjid in Fujairah. Oldest masjid in the United Arab Emirates and still being used. Dates from 20A.H. (640 AD or 1446)
  • Strange stories of past which seems quite unbelievable. But whatever is the history, inside there is some peace. It's very compact but it's spiritual. I been there many times but the best time I spent there was at Tahajad time.
  • Great cultural ancient mosque and must see place in fujairah.
  • Beautiful mosque. I felt so peaceful while I was there. Had a great time. Definitely recommended for a visit!
