Must see while spending time in Abu Dhabi. Beautiful architecture. Best visiting time is right after Isha' prayer (last prayer of the day).

“Authentic Abu Dhabi Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2011

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is not to be missed! It is open to everyone, all ages and even offers complimentary guided tours to enhance your visit. The Emirati guides are really warm, professional, interesting and are willing to answer all of your questions. You even get to dress in traditional clothing to add to the experience! The mosque has a website www.szgmc.ae and has the times of the 'walk-in' tours and lots of other information - there is no fuss and no need to booking in advance for your visit! Remember your camera and to dress respectfully.

“Amazing Mosque!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2011

Shaikh Zayed Mosque is one of the amazing mosques I have ever visited! When you enter the premises of the Mosque the women are asked to wear a black Abaya (i.e. a black dress that covers the whole body) after which they give you a guide which shows you around. You can take pictures of the whole mosque except for the grave area. The mosque has the worlds largest carpet and the largest chandelier too. It is known to be the 8th largest mosque in the world named after the founder and ex-President of UAE.

“Most amazing site!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2011

If you do one thing in Abu Dhabi, it has to be this! It is absolutely spectacular with all that white marble, gold finishings, swarovski crystal chandeliers, plasma TVs - no expense has been spared! The tour is very interesting too and I learned a lot about the Arab culture.
