I have been so many times and each time I go, I take a different route and have a new tour guide! The most peaceful place ever. The tour guides are fantastic- so polite and knowledgable.

I took a trip back to Abu Dhabi just to see this. It is astonishing. The pure white Macedonian marble gleams in the desert sun, accented by gorgeous blue reflecting pools. The carpet inside is the largest handmade example on earth. The mosque is the worlds third largest second only to those in medina and Mecca. Take the tour! Visit the restrooms and ablutions. They are also impressive.

We were recommended to visit by local friends ; had it not been for them we would probably passed on 'a place of religion' . But we are so glad we went!
The place is awe inspiring.
This now sits alongside the Taj Mahal, St Peters in Rome, Petra etc. as wondrous.
Our guide was outstanding ; no religion , just amazing facts and with his commentary we understood the incredible engineering , art , workmanship that make this so very special. The sheer scale is overwhelming.
Definitely a MUST DO..

The Grand Mosque is not located in the centre, but when you're short in time, for a business trip or short stopover you can easily take a detour on your way from the airport to your (hotel) destination. It is along the way from the airport to the city centre (corniche), just let your taxidriver make a detour and wait for you at the mosque for a few dirhams more. We spend about 30 minutes for a quick visit.
Don't forget to wear long sleeves and for woman something like a scarf. You can borrow a dress if you forget, but a hooded sweater will do also.

Same way as the Taj Mahal - it really has the wow factor.

Tour guides a we're fun, informative and sensitive to questions who knew little about Islam.

This is a must do for visitors to Abu Dhabi and it's free.
