Impressive Mosque

The Mosque is certainly on of the most amazing buildings in Abu Dhabi. It's a great stop to take in the atmosphere and admire the architecture.

This is a work of art. The light always catches it at different times, and gives it a different colour. Its best to go early if you want to get pictures without crowds of people in them. Men shouldn't wear shorts, and women should be covered. You are also not allowed to take in cigarettes or lighters.

Visit to the mosque is impressive. A must do is the guided walking tour by which they take you inside the mosque and explain in detail. The tour is offered thrice a day at 10, 11 am and 5 pm. Also evening view with lighting is good. Conservative clothing is advised.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen in person. Amazing details, and impressive architecture. The further you go into the mosque, the more beautiful it gets. Women must wear appropriate attire. Abayas are available on site if you happen to forget your head covering. Arms and legs must be covered on women, and men can wear short sleeves,... More

The scale of the mosque is breathtaking and the attention to detail is startling, never thought I would spend minutes looking at inlaid mother of pearl in one of the 1080 columns that support the structure. A young, humorous male guide showed us much more than the building, he (gently) educated us on the Muslim religion and culture.

Just beautiful. Went there in the evening. Free entry. If required, special long dresses provided for males and females. Seems like a lot of work there still in progress. Worse visiting.
