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.

Worth going to. Locals not sure where it is, go to the end of the Corniche past Starbucks and it is close there.

The name "Floating Mosque" is a misnomer. This beautiful mosque is built along the Corniche in North Jeddah. If you are heading to the city center from North Jeddah you will definitely pass by this mosque.

The location shown in tripadvisor is not right, actually it is at the end of the corniche, around 4 km far from Red Sea mall. Usually parking after Maghreb is full, and the guard closes the Masjed after Ishaa prayer. The view is nice after Maghreb , it is actual name is Al Rehma Masjed, you can check it by... More
