“Amazing- Abu Dhabi must see”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

It already has 5 out of 5, so there's not much more to say that hasn't already been said. Beautiful mosque, very "Grand", beautiful inscriptions and lighting. You just have to go. Make sure you check the times during Ramadan. Also, you don't have to bring an abaya with you if you're a woman, they have ones you can check-out.

“Beatiful”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a must! It is so white, so beautiful and grand that we were stunned by its apperance. Remember to dress accordingly and bring your camera. Even the area around the restrooms needs a visit.

“Peaceful and definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We visited this one afternoon and found it to be a very peaceful experience. Try go late in the day, just before sunset, so you can get some beautiful lighting for your photos.
Ladies, make sure to wear long pants or dress, and cover your arms and chest. No short skirts or tight clothing. You will get given a cover for your head.
Definitely worth a visit while you are in Abu Dhabi.

“Woow”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

What a beautiful architecture. Amazing looking place, very nice and quiet. A very well organised place, women have to cover their heads before entering, even if you dont get one you would be provided with one before entering. A must visit if in the city or any emirates.

“Glitzy!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Another glitzy monument - which is not only glitzy but huge. It can accommodate 40,000. It bespeaks of the opulence and the grandeur of the Middle East. You can only gaze in awe at the wonders that man and money combined can achieve.
