Owner description: This beautiful white mosque seems to emerge from the sea.

The Floating Mosque is a must sea place.. It is not because it is floating, actually it is built on pillars erected in the sea and apparently when the sea rises it looks as if it is floating. It is a must sea place because it is very beatiful. Pics speak for themselves.

Youll all be getting fed up with me but I have been to this place many times. Being a non Muslim I cant enter and as this is KSA I dont get too close, you never know.

I sat there one night for a good hour watching the sun set behind the Mosque. As the sun sets the mosque lights up and its a very nice and relaxing experience. The exception being the noise of the road and the thousands and thousands of cars that drive up and down, beeping and reving.

As this is has become a tourist attraction there are lots of locals milling about and taking photos of the mosque. With other areas I have had verbal abuse, here seems more accepting of white people.

As with all of Jeddah no one had heard of waste bins so rubbish is just thrown on to the street, its a habit of all locals, which spoils the area. The rubbish problem is only compounded by the shops that take over the full width of the pavement, making it only possible to pass on the very busy roads.
