Al Bidya Mosque, Fujairah
(3.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Admire the architectural ingenuity of Al Bidya Mosque, the oldest extant mosque in the country. The mud and stone structure uses no wood, creating a seamless form set against a rocky backdrop. The lack of wood means that radiocarbon dating cannot be performed, so the building's age cannot be determined for certain--though it is thought to date back to the 15th century. The small, square, whitewashed structure features four domes, supported by only one central pillar, once again creating a continuity of design unseen in modern mosques.

  • Situated north of Fujairah is easily reachable by car (the better to visit the UAE is even rent a car). The mosque has a plaque on the outside with the date 1446 as referring to its probable date of construction. There are associated with the mosque 2 towers with defensive and apparently functions where you get a good view of the surrounding areas

  • This quaint little building is brick and mud covered and represents the earliest introduction of Islam to the area. It does not require all the strict rituals of the grand Mosque in Abu Dubai but clot...  more »
