  • The only mosque in Dubai open to non-muslims, Jumeirah Mosque has tours daily. Bookings are recommended but not required provided a timely arrival at the entrance to the mosque at 09:45 am is met from...  more »
  • Actually, you can see this in 5 min, but it was good to take a tour, had a good explanation about Mosque and Muslim culture, adding to some snack and drinks.  more »
  • A little disappointed because the mosque is small and it was soon made the turn. Explanation in English however interesting and warm welcome.

  • One of the best mosques that i have visited in a while. It is not just artistically designed, it has been design extremely well in functioning as well. A perfect place to have a small nikkah ceremony with a few family members and friends. It is nice to see that the government is spending this much on mosques as well.
  • Never seen a huge beautiful mosque before. All the ladies were given Burga to cover there heads. Each and every corner is kept neat. It's really a exceptional peice of art.
  • The Jumeirah Mosque is a must see since it is a land mark of Dubai. It is not the largest mosque in the UAE, yet it is one of the few open to non-Muslims. The Visit Programme is hosted by The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. The visit itself takes about an hour for a small fee. Mosque visitors get the chance to observe the prayer and learn more about the customs of worship and ask any questions under the banner program "Open doors. Open minds." Jumeirah Mosque showcases the medieval Fatimid architecture in its stone construction. Visit tours are offered daily accept Friday and begin at 10am sharp. No pre-registration is required. Plan to arrive at 9:30am for registration and enjoy Emirati snacks and hot beverages. Doors will close at 10:05am and will reopen at 11:15am. There is only one guided tour daily. Entry fee is 20AED per person while children under 12 free. The Mosque grounds are open all day, and you may view the Jumeirah Mosque's beautiful architecture from the outside any day of the week. Located at the end of Jumeirah Beach Road, the closest Metro stop is Al Jafiliya. From there you can take a short taxi ride to the mosque or transfer to C10 RTA bus. Modest dress is advisable, however national attire can be borrowed at the door.
  • Incredible looking architecture. Very hospitable service and great food. Please remember to wear modest clothing if attending a tour. You'll want to be there early to schedule your tour and spend time in their learning centre. Try the camel milk ice cream!
  • Visited the mosque with friends. It was a very good experience. The entry fee is 20 aed or something. There was a guided tour of the place as well as an introduction to Islam and the 5 pillars of Islam. It was a simply awesome experience for non-Muslims like us. There were local snacks and delicacies to enjoy.
