Owner description: The Jumeirah Mosque is a must see since it is a land mark of Dubai. It is not the largest mosque in the UAE, yet it is one of the few open to non-Muslims. The Visit Programme is hosted by The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. The visit itself takes about an hour for a small fee. Mosque visitors get the chance to observe the prayer and learn more about the customs of worship and ask any questions under the banner program "Open doors. Open minds." Jumeirah Mosque showcases the medieval Fatimid architecture in its stone construction. Visit tours are offered daily accept Friday and begin at 10am sharp. No pre-registration is required. Plan to arrive at 9:30am for registration and enjoy Emirati snacks and hot beverages. Doors will close at 10:05am and will reopen at 11:15am. There is only one guided tour daily. Entry fee is 20AED per person while children under 12 free. The Mosque grounds are open all day, and you may view the Jumeirah Mosque's beautiful architecture from the outside any day of the week. Located at the end of Jumeirah Beach Road, the closest Metro stop is Al Jafiliya. From there you can take a short taxi ride to the mosque or transfer to C10 RTA bus. Modest dress is advisable, however national attire can be borrowed at the door.

Visitors of any faith can visit this beautiful mosque in Jumeirah, Dubai. Everyone should dress conservatively or expect to be offered traditional garb to cover up! Once inside, one can see where the men and women pray 5 times a day. You will be shown around by a delightful young lady who is happy to answer all of your questions. I have been several times now with guests and all of them have enjoyed their visits and I have learned a little more each time. One of the best hours spent doing the 'tour guide chores' when our many visitors come - and it is free!

Dubai was my first visit to the middle east and the Jumeirah Mosque was an absolute highlight. It is the only mosque in Dubai, that alows non-muslims. Besids seeing a mosque from the inside, you get to lern a lot about the Islam and the way of life in the U.A.E.. It was both highly entertaining and educational. I would recomend it to everybody who visitis Dubai or the middle east for the first time.
Remember to be clothed modestly, so cover your knees and shoulders, when you go visit. A headscarf for the ladys will be provided, should you not have brought one in the first place.

the most picturized mosque in Dubai
Has helped many an amateur photographer win competitions!
of course until such time that the Grand Mosque in Abu DHabi stole the show.... visiting the Jumeirah Mosque was a "MUST VIEW"

A very informative introduction to a religion that is still to be understood by many. The Narrators put a western spin on the talk to make it more understandable for everyone.

It's unususal in the extreme to be allowed inside a mosque in the UAE as a non-Muslim. You can take the BIg Bus Tour that stops nearby here or visit independently - just turn up and walk in. One day we were there (have been twice on separate visits to Dubai) two women in black habits were explaining the roie of women in Islam. They were young English girls from Essex; it was surreal but their contribution was genuine and instructive. The decor inside is beautiful and well worth the visit. Respect local custom and dress accordingly - we were distressed to see Japanese particularly just treating it as yet another tourist thing to cross off the list and not dressing appropriately, not even taking off their shoes. If you see such behaviour tick the people off just as we did because, after all, it is a rare privilege to be allowed inside a mosque.
