Beautiful mosque - worth a visit. Stunning detail and craftsmanship. Get there early for a quiet tour - should take an hour. My family enjoyed me wearing the jihab for the trip so an extra entertainment provided!

If you have never visited a mosque, then this is a nice one to visit. Ladies can hire an abaya free, But you need a passport or id card as security. A quick and simple process. Ladies ankles must be covered as the abayas provided are too short and can cause problems gaining entry. The toilets are located in the area where you have to wear the abayas Worth a visit and is FREE.
Plenty of parking

Beautiful place to visit in Abudhabi. Found it a bit inconvenient to enter. The place was in renovations and we were sent from one entrance to another until we finally got to the main entrance. Females are required to wear Abayas provided by the mosque and mine was just so long l couldn't walk in it.The place is beautiful but there really isn't much to do there except admire the architecture.

This is a beautiful mosque with a gorgeous interior. The audio guide is helpful. Be aware that women must have hair covered and wear a floor length skirt or loose fitting trousers with a long sleeved loose top. Otherwise you will be required to war an abbeya the is provided
