Al Bidya Mosque, Fujairah

(3.8/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • This little mosque is one of the oldest in the UAE - possibly even the oldest. It is nestled at the side of the E99, and many people could drive past an not even notice it is there. As this is a place...  more »
  • It was a very windy day so had to avoid being blown away when climbing the turrets. The Mosque was closed for renovation but you could access the courtyard. Very interesting to visit.
