It's not exactly floating though. However it gives the pleasure of peace and serenity. Adorable mosque. U pray and hear the beautiful sound of Nature.

The Masjid is mixing both religion and leisure. You may pray and then sit and your family next to it. There are plenty of places around it to sit and enjoy watching the sea. My advice is NOT to buy from the people who are selling food in front of the Mosque. Once I saw one lady was pouring the... More

We have visited this mosque several times. It is located on cornich road and offers a beautiful view of the red sea. The area is quite popular among locals and people asking with families gather here for Bar B Q. I have seen various umrah pilgrims frequenting here as well. However, it does not have any special religious or historical... More

I went here because I was really curious of why they called it "The Floating Mosque" but when I saw it, honestly its just plain and nothing is surprising about it.

For long time Jeddah was a jewol of the Gulf butno longer. This mosque was really a wonderfull land mark attraction. Now its just one more mosque. The floating design of buldings is becoming more famous with the Palm island of Dubai and the Pearl of Qatar

A very nice Masjid on the Cornishe. All the interior is very beautiful and the outside view is also very nice. Gives a cooling feeling.

I loved visiting the floating Masjid, just to reflect on our journey just to see the Red Sea, it was refreshing.

A very important 'floating' monument to visit, that's hard to miss. I used to come here and have long walks along the red sea through Cornish road. The best time to go is at Sunset of course. Whether you want to pray inside (I never went inside) or just sit close by, you're gonna find this spot to be peaceful... More
