The Jumeriah Grand Mosque is not just beautiful, it has some beautiful minds behind its standing and purpose in the Muslim world. There are so few mosques that offer tours to non-Muslims, let alone provide the forum to ask about Islam in an unrestricted and non-judgmental setting. The tour is held daily except for Fridays. The price is barely $3... More

This is a very nice mosque but there is only one tour a day which is 10:00 am. If you don't get there on time for the single tour you can't visit the mosque which would be disappointing. Very nice but not as spectacular as the Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

Jumeira Mosque is very nice but if you want to see a spectacular mosque - absolutely stunning - go up the road to Abu Dhabi

I visited the Mosque on my own and found the whole experience very uplifting. I wanted to know more about Islam and the guide was very informative and at times humorous. An excellent tour which, if more people took it, it would help to build bridges between cultures and religions. Women must wear head covering but if you don't have... More

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
