Don't miss this if you are in the UAE. It is fascinating and beautiful. Take the tour, there are several English tours a day and it's the only way you can see the inside. We arrived about 4 pm and spent the hour before our 5 o'clock tour taking photos. It was still daylight and our photos are very good.... More

This is fantastic place to visit. So beautiful and peaceful. Well organised in the way you are directed around the building and it's grounds. The issuing of robes to those not dressed for the location is an added bonus. The respect all gave in removing shoes so that they could enter the mosque wad good to see. A must visit... More

I would say this is more than Museum rather Mosque- if inside of the mosque part is prohibited to be passed and security just pushing not sit and pass - this is more likely museum. Yes, it's open for the all people, but they'd better get experience from Turkey- Blue Mosque where is the line also exist but prayer can... More

The mosque atmosphere can be a bit chaotic if not prepared for the crowds and meandering people everywhere. No guides or service people were in sight -only security and a several security checks. Though it's not necessary, many tourists came with a group and a guide. Take time to enjoy the Turkish tiles and floral designs throughout the facility. Right... More

Absolutely no doubt about a five star attraction. The mosque is stunning in both size and architecture from the outside and beautifully crafted throughout. The visitor flow is managed well in order that it is not overrun which allows all to enjoy the majesty of the mosque. It alone made the one and a half hour each way trip from... More

This was the most amazing modern mosque we have ever been to. It is like modern version of the Taj Mahal. We listened to a guide, which I would recommend as it helped us to understand the characteristics of the place. He explained all the features and the meaning behind things that you might have missed if you had just... More

We initially passed the mosque by night which was stunning, but by day this mosque is incredible. There is a dress code, which is expected for men and women. The building is serene and beautiful. The scale of the building is surreal. The amount of white marble and gold is unbelievable, but the architecture is just mind blowing. A definite... More
