I was at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with my best friend and her mother. When we came there in shorts and tanktops, the security friendly requested us to go the dressing room to get ourselves an abaya. Wearing this traditional clothing already gave such an extra dimension to the visit. There was a free tour of one hour and the friendly local men showed us around. He answered all questions politely and because of this I got a way better understanding of the principles of the Islam and the culture of the UAE. Furtermore is the Mosque such an impressive building and the process of how it has been built is truly fascinating.

If you like learning about other cultures and you are in Abu Dhabi it is a must visit

This is a modern day construction in glorious white marble. Very well managed and convenient for people from other cultures and religions. The chandelier, carpets inside and the scale of the entire place was stunning. I have seen a lot of mosques and even the blue mosque in Istanbul - among the creations would certainly recommend this.

Do not visit Abu Dhabi without going to the Mosque, it is extremely grand and quite breathtaking. You must dress appropriately and respectfully (I am a Christian but totally understand and respect thier wishes). If you do turn up with your legs and arms on display (women) you are taken to a grooming room and given an Abaya to wear. My opinion is go dressed appropriately and take a head scarf. Beautiful chandeliers and the most amazing carpet. do not miss out, this is the most wonderful place to go and visit.
