Smaller inside

Did the cultural talk inside the mosque which was great, i did think it would be larger inside and also more opulent.

The mosque is very beautiful on the outside, but if you want to get in, you have to put on burka and take off your shoes. I felt quite disturbed and I was afraid of germs. And it smelled like feet... But the architecture is amazing and that's a relief.

There are over 500 mosques in Dubai. This is one of them. Although being larger and more important than the other mosques, the architecture does not match at all the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi which is treasure of design, achitecture and decoration.

In comparison to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, this is pretty average. If you have time and transportation, it's worth it to go to Sheikh Zayed Mosque to tour instead.

Plan to visit the Mosque when the cultural center provides a guided, narrated visit. It is an excellent presentation on Islam and offers plenty of time for questions and answers. We really enjoyed the program and found it very educational as well as giving us a nice view of the inside of the Mosque. This is the only Mosque in... More

Great place to visit, insight to Islamic religion, the opening statement by a priest was there are, can't remember the number of Muslims he quoted but said that they are bound to have some idiots amongst them !! Quite controversial statement ... Also lady speaks about female role and both accept questions ...

Place where you go and get a feeling of peace and tranquility. Jumeirah Mosque is a perfect example of UAE's religious openness.

Mos t things are very modern in Dubai, most having been built within the last couple of decades. While the mosque is modern it is in a traditional style. Very beautiful to look at. Didn't have time to go into it and feel that it is primarily a place of worship rather than a tourist site.

What an astonishingly beautiful mosque. It has a lovely tea and coffee area with very elegant seating. Across from that is an amazingly white furniture reading room with sofas. And the restrooms are very clean and nicely maintained.

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
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.
