You wouldn't go miles out of your way, but this was an interesting short stop to see the country's oldest mosque - very small but interestingly designed. There's also a small hill and tower right next to the mosque, from which you have good views of the surrounding area. Note that the mosque is only open for entry from 9... More

This is the old mosque in the United Arab Emirates. You can see while driving if you go up on the small hill you will get great view of the surrounding area.

This is the oldest Mosque in the U.A.E. It costs nothing to visit there. Ladies must be appropriately dressed in full black dress with long sleeves and head covered by black veil. All the clothes are provided free of charge and it is interesting to visit here.

Small mosque but interesting to see this old building. Surroundings are beautiful gardens and 2 forts on hill. Women are allowed in and given cloth to cover hair. Doesn't cost to enter mosque or forts!

This was the last stop on our half day bus tour and we arrived just as the mosque was closed to visitors. I suppose it would have been unpleasant to have several hundred tourists traipsing through the small structure at the same time. It was smaller than the "rock mosque" we visited in Capadoccia but is the oldest in the... More

Went on a hunt for this mosque while in Dibba, the fort and mosque were very quaint and interesting to see, including the view from the top! It was worth the trip but not a lot of informaton given but very nice to see and explore.

This is a very small mosque probably 60 Sqm. It is the oldest mosque in the U.A.E. It is like a 10 minute drive from Khorfakkan. At most you will spend 30 min I this place but it is ok to see. A pic of you the mosque and the watch tower is pretty nice.
