“Grandiose!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

Very beautiful and a must to see. Something that you can't really experience anywhere in the world. I can say yes it is truly one of the most beautiful mosque that you will be able to see. Very clean.

“breath taking”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

this mosque is beautiful and worth a visit, it is very interesting and you can have a tour, the women have to cover up and they will give you the dress and headwear , but you have to give them photo id, we only took photocopies of our passport which they weren't that happy with and kept asking for id cards we told them that these were not given in the uk, we got a taxi there and I would definitely recommend a visit

“Grandoise Aladdin-esque mosque”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

When you first see the mosque, the pristine white and the shape reminds you of Aladdin. In order to enter the mosque, women have to wear an abaya, for which you need to have an ID on you. Once you are set, you go exploring. The mosque is very big, and has Turkish influences in the form of the tiled walls. The prayer halls are huge and the chandeliers stunning, in line with the UAE/Arab taste. Overall, a great experience. During the summer, its better to go in the evening, though the heat can still be stifling
