Another must do in the Emirates. If you are Muslim, you better come on Friday just before Friday prayer starts. This time all the usual restrictions for access are removed, arrests are not allowed in and you have an unobstructed view of all the beauty....More
It is a magnificent Mosque. It is a must see - however, very time consuming for the amount you get to see, and leaves you standing in hot crowds. There are no entrance fees, or rental of robes, which is good. It was like queuing...More
This is not just any monument. It is the Taj Mahal built in the modern times. Very well organised. The large prayer hall, the beautiful hand made carpet which is actually without any joints, marvelous chandeliers, intricate works and large expanse of whiteness is just...More
Very pretty Mosque. The free voice guide is highly recommended. Very informative and educational. Visit at night with awesome blue lighting. Will love to visit again for the day light pure white architecture.
Do join the free walking tour available at the Mosque for an informative programme and the tour allows guests participation in q&a session & entry to the secluded areas of the mosque away from the public crowd.

Yes, non Muslim tourists can visit the Mosque. Only time not allowed are during weekly services and holidays. Women are required to have arms covered to wrist, long loose pants or skirt covering to ankles and full head cover. If you do not have proper clothes, they will provide a full one-piece covering. All visitors are also required to remove their shoes to visit the Mosque.
We highly recommend arriving to participate in a guided tour. The guides are excellent and the experience is more complete that just borrowing a headset. You are also escorted through the interior which other visitors are not. The tour is free and you can ask all your questions. This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Middle east and I highly recommend the visit and the important of being respectful during your time there.
