“Well worth donning an abaya for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Beautiful piece of architecture with elements from many Islamic traditions integrated elegantly into the structure. If you're really interested, Google Robert Hillenbrand, Professor Emeritus of Islamic Art and Architecture at the University of Edinburgh, who wrote a book on the mosque.

Very well architecture with nicely synchronised carpet & chendlier colour scheme. Sitting there gives you real internal peace. Worth visiting several times.

“The Grand mosque is truly Grand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

This is a beautiful mosque, and a truly grand building. Entrance was free, and you may borrow an abaya to cover up. Quite a lot of people, but never felt crowded. This is a must-see place if going to Abu Dhabi!
