The combination of marble, gold and great design is amazing. Very peaceful place and a must see regardless of ones religion due to sheer beauty of the structure and the sense of calm one feels by the end.

A must-see in Abu-Dhabi. 1,5 hours were more than enough. The entrance is free. Very beautiful interiors.

Grand is what it is - another exemplary modern creation. Amazing domes, grand hallways! House to the largest single piece carpet made coupled with some amazing chandeliers and wall arts! You'll almost forget that this is a place of worship!
