“Magnificent Grand mosque”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Me and my family visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque many times....the place was so amazing and stunning views inside and outside. the architectural design was incomparable. Free entrance and all religion are welcome with complimentary guided tour if you like or you can go on your own.

The Mosque was open till midnight everyday except on Friday for worshiper, I used to come there late night to get a great capture of the mosque because at the early hours the place was so busy and lots of tourists and visitors.

If you're planning to visit the place, remember to wear decently and respect the Emirates culture.

“Hot in the day time, but magnificent”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Stunning building, great to see amazing buildings like this still being built. You need at least an hour here, I spent 3 hours with my camera catching the different colours as the sun went down.

“A modern masterpiece of design”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Stunning design, worth a visit, you'll need about an hour at least. You don't need to be religious in any way to appreciate it, look at the detail on the columns the inlaid designs. Best to see on a cooler day as the central open area is bright white and a very hot sun trap

“Beautiful architect”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This mosque and center is one of the best attractions in Abu Dhabi city, built with care to the finest detail, with no cost saved with materials brought from all over the world.
Take one of the free tours, they are very frequent, very informative and in different languages, they try to present it as a cultural center, and it is a good one indeed.
