Owner description: This beautiful white mosque seems to emerge from the sea.
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The "Floating Mosque" in Jeddah is really just an edifice built on pilings on the coral reef along the Jeddah Corniche. Locally, it is known as a mosque which Indonesian Muslims have a particularly affinity to visit when coming for Hajj or Omrah, but it really isn't all that special. It is on the northern end of the Corniche, which has lot of spots to picnic on the Jeddah seaside. I'd recommend mornings (the earlier the better between May and October, when it heats up early in Jeddah) for a drive and stroll, both near this mosque and along the Corniche, in general.

The mosque projects on to the Red Sea and is partly on water. However, it is a must-visit destination for all Umrah and Hajj people coming from Indonesia and Malaysia and to some extent Turkey. The interior of the mosque is beautiful and the sunset as shown in the picture really looks stunning. Visited by Jeddah residents as well as it is located on the Corniche.

We stopped here for our Asr prayer on our homeward bound journey upon finishing our Umrah. The building and the view was wonderful, and the breeze of red sea make the atmosphere very inviting. However as we walked nearer, we can smell the stench from the toilet, the water supply in the toilet was not adequate and it caused difficulties to the jamaah, the authority who managed the mosque should buck up and take cleanliness as priority, otherwise the beauty of the mosque and its surrounding will be tarnished.

We stopped here for Maghrib prayers on our homeward bound journey. we agree that the view was stunning but as we walked towards the prayer room there was an awful stench from the waters below. tis a pity the bathrooms were not mantained well and taking ablution for prayers was an ordeal. We hope those concerned would do something quick to improve the cleanliness of the bathrooms..
