Said to be the oldest mosque in the UAE, it is quite picturesque and stands right below a fort with a wonderful view. Right on your way to Al Aqqah too, so dead handy. If you want to get into the mosque, you need to cover up and be there before noon.

This was a very nice experience. The road leading up to it was smooth and scenic. This is the perfect location to come and watch the sunset so plan your trip accordingly. The view is beautiful.

More than 550 years old (though renovated now). Historical and atmospheric. Nice and friendly priest (Bangladeshi) inside the Mosque Do climb up the stairs to the two towers. The higher tower has great views and was breezy. Overall a very nice visit - A 'must visit' attraction in Fujairah!

Oldest mosque in the UAE. Unique structure and the fort behind the mosque offers great view of the ocean. Worth a visit.

This is a Wonderful place to see if you want to know how Emirati life was a few hundred years ago. It may be interesting if you have a taste to touch on to the History of Emirati. It is perfect if you could plan a day trip from Dubai combined with visiting places in Fujairah ...

Al Bidyah Mosque What a truly amazing and charming little mosque this is, so very different from the modern mosques which are sometimes built on a massive scale such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. This is tiny, built of mud and stone so impossible to date accurately, and is the oldest mosque in the UAE. It... More
