First ever visit to a mosque and was a new experience. 4th biggest in the world. There are scheduled tours by many operators and worth to go with if you don't have local knowledge. Beware: men must wear long pants and women must cover head. Rules are very strict.

I've been to mosques in other parts of the world but this one tops them all. Approaching it at sundown gives you a sense of awe and wonder at the beauty and magnificence of the place. Bathed in a soft blue hue against pearly white marble, we could feel the sense of peace and serenity that pervades around it. The... More

To get to the Mosque is fairly easy, by taxi or by bus from the bus station (if you're coming from Dubai). Taxi will cost approx. 30 rupees. The way back is the same - many taxis are await at the designated parking spot. The entrance is free of charge. Be aware of clothes restrictions. Nevertheless, if something is not... More

This is a must if you are in Abu Dhabi. It is absolutely beautiful. Don't forget to take passport ID/driving licence with you as you will need this if you are wanting to hire clothing.
