“Beautiful and majestic”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful mosque, a sight to behold. No charges to enter but visitors/ tourists need to get garb to cover up head( for women) before entering mosque. Nothing much to do, can get some great photo shots.

“One of the most beautiful mosques in the world”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Simple but grandiose. Very elegant and definitely worth the detour. There is not much to see in Abu Dhabi per se, but the mosque, in more or less an emiraty architectural style is superb. All white, the floor marble, lamps and interior decoration is simple but very rich. Do not miss the mosque visit if you are in the UAE. It is a one hour drive from Dubai too. Avoid Fridays as it is prayer day and you may have to wait a while before access is given to tourists.

“Fabulous site with competent engaging guides”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The mosque is absolutely beautiful. Non-Muslims are treated with the full respect due to any visitor. Ladies have to cover their hair and are given a hooded cover if necessary. No admission, full rights to take pictures.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

21st century wonder of world, superb white marble, beautiful chandeliers with Iranian carpet. Women have to wear Burka supplied by them. Cool inside when very hot outside.
