This quaint little building is brick and mud covered and represents the earliest introduction of Islam to the area. It does not require all the strict rituals of the grand Mosque in Abu Dubai but clothing rules still apply as a sign of respect. Definitely worth seeing.

As the oldest existing mosque in the UAE, this tiny rustic building is worth a visit. Situated just off the main coast road, you can easily walk 5 minutes up the hill behind to the two towers for excellent views and snaps. If you have the right attire then also nip inside. A 30 min visit.
