Stunningly beautiful. Abayas and sheilas were given to women on arrival.

If you are in Abu Dhabi it is a must see. No shorts allow for men and women must cover, bring your own head covering. Take the tour then walk around on your own and view the beauty of the place.

In the heat the walk over to get robed is too far. I was injured and having stitches in my foot and there were no facilties to help elderly or disabled visitors. The heat was about 43C that day so they need to rrange the location in a better way or at least having some way for the visitors to get there faster such as a mini train or carriage

This mosque is the largest and most iconic in the UAE. We watched it being built in the late 90's when we lived here first time around, and it was only finished when we returned in 2007. Visiting this mosque is an absolute must, whether you live in the UAE or you are visiting from abroad. Tours can usually be booked by contacting a local agency (try Googling Abu Dhabi Mosque Tours). Ladies can get abayas (black over-dresses) on arrival. The mosque is fantastic--inside and out. It has the largest chandelier in the region, and (I think) the largest carpet as well. Don't forget to bring sun glasses--the white exterior can be very bright in the sun!

This is one of the place that everyone should go if they visit Abu Dhabi. A free tour is conducted twice every day in the morning except fridays(prayer day) at 10:00 and 11:00. this tour gives you insights of what a Muslim truly is. .To see this mosque and to be able learn was a beautiful and fascinating experience.The place itself was jaw dropping and the opulence of this place was magnificent.It is a must see for everyone..all ages and all types of people are welcomed.My daughters and myself were able to experience wearing an Abaya.It is a must for women to cover themselves inside the mosque.
