Al Bidya Mosque, Fujairah

(260+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.
