I did this as a City Tour stop. We were only allotted 10 minutes and weren't permitted entry. If you do this on your own, make arrangements through the Cultural Center; you will be able to go inside and have a tour.

Beautiful mosque on the Beach Road. Ladies get to wear a scarf and an abaya (long dress/coat), if they're not suitably dressed. There is not much to see in the mosque as it is not very big, but as it is one of the only mosques you can visit, it's definately worth it. The woman that gives the tour speaks... More

Jumeirah Mosque is a mosque in Dubai City. It is said that it is the most photographed mosque in all of Dubai. Organized tours are available for non-Muslims.

Impressive from the outside, but we couldn't get inside - not knowing there is only one registration a day (9.30) for the single 10am 75 minute tour every day but Friday. It is very recent, though, built in 1998 and there's nothing else nearby - a very busy road and a beach completely closed off for the construction of the... More

For a small fee, you can visit this mosque, which is the only mosque that allows tours as far as I know in Dubai. My wife and I both agreed we learned much more here than I expected. The mosque is beautiful but i'm sure there are ones out there that look nicer but what we enjoyed the most was... More

Go -- in the mornign when it s quiet in Jumeira and enjoy. Probably the best way to get an idea of what (real) Islam is about. Very ! peacefull and calming. My favourite place after the Blue Mosque in Istambul -- and I m not a muslim.

I really enjoyed the visit to this mosque. It is the only mosque in Dubai that allows tourists to visit as far as I'm aware. I arrived around quarter to ten as I seen from the other reviews that late admittance wouldn't be accepted. Note this is the only tour in the dayand the mosque is otherwise only open for... More

Open everyday but Friday, the Mosque is a must see for those visiting, especially for the first time. Like it's sister project in Bur Dubai, an Emirate team will answer any and all questions about living and being in the Middle East. This visit is focused more on the religion of Islam. You will learn a great deal about religion... More

Would suggest this is on everybody's must do list when in Dubai. The outside of the mosque is beautiful. The one hour tour is very informative on Islam beliefs and there is also chance for a Q&A at the end. If clothing is not deemed suitable clothes are provided for both men & women plus pashminas to cover your head... 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.
