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

I wish I had a photo as this is a very special mosque along the Jeddah Cornish. It appears to be floating and always has reminded me of a similar mosque in Brunei. This one in Jeddah has a much better architecture.

Come to the Floating Mosque at sunset to enjoy magnificent views. This is best viewed outside the mosque. Also if you manage to catch it during high tide, the mosque literally looks like it is floating.

Nothing special, just a mosque on the ocean. From the photos I saw before visiting I was expecting a lot. But once I arrived it was not too much and I was quickly in a taxi to the next attraction.

the mosque is located above the sea so it seems like it floats on it. the view at night was really nice especially with all the city light on. there is not too much to see because it is a praying mosque and you cannot enter it especially at praying time.
