This entire visit shouldn't take more than 30-40 minutes. We came after visiting hours, but luckily it was prayer time so they opened the gate. We are Muslim so we were able to go inside and pray, my mother (who isn't Muslim) was also able to go in with me and take a look around. Afterwards, we walked up to... More

Al Bidyah Mosque is situated about 35km from Fujairah. It is tiny but very beautiful and definitely worth a trip out. It is open in the morning from 9 till 12, no entry charge. Ladies must dress modestly, hair, arms and legs covered or you will be asked to wear an abbeya by the caretaker. If you are feeling adventurous... More

The mosque is a religious symbol, as hazrat ali once while travelling stopped there to pray. It is however not mentioned on the board of this mosque for the reasons that people would mis use the place as make bidah. Other than the religious aspect, its an antique place, you would love to see the architecture of the way its... More

The history of UAE is not very much visible everywhere and there are very few places across the country where you can find something old, Bidya Mosque being one of them. It's a small mosque with some unique architectural traits, full of people after 4PM every day. I recommend going there in morning when no one is there and you... More

A really nice place, but the opening time is only between 9a.m.-12. From this place there is a nice view to the sea and the palm trees.
