Definitely a must visit!!! this huge structure built from marble is just too impressive. its most advisable to take one of the guided tours which are held at certain times during the day.. It is highly recommended to visit it in the evenings just to check out the amazing way the mosque is lit up.. And stick to the dresscode mentioned.. do check out their site to get a first hand information of the dresscode as well as the timings of their guided tour

One of the best architecture of a Mosque in the world. The fine ceramics flowery-wall and stunning grand chandelier in the main hall is just amazing. The white wall-wash all over simply signifies purity. A worth visit.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the most amazing places I ever visited in the world. I know a lot of religious places across the world, but nothing really compares to it.
First the size is impressive, you can spot from far away, but nothing is more impressive than being inside, see each detail, the different materials used, the patterns, it is absolutely stunning.
The prayer room is also impressive, first the endless one piece of carpet, the hanging chandelier and how you can feel a lot of peace inside.
Useful tips, the dress code is important, but ladies can get an abaya at the entry, try to be respectful and wear cloths that are not revealing, even if you are going to put an abaya on top to enter, there are some areas that the abaya is not yet available and revealing clothes should be avoided.
Use shoes easy to remove, as you cannot enter the grounds using it. Make sure you mark where you left it, as the mosque is huge and shoes can sometimes get lost.
Avoid Friday morning as it is the sacred day for Muslims and depending on the time you arrive you can have to wait outside for quite a bit. During prayer times you cannot enter the prayer room either, unless you are Muslim, so it is not usual you may need to wait outside until prayer time is over.
