Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This mosque is absolutely stunning and a can't miss if visiting Abu Dhabi. They give a free cultural tour every hours and you should 100% do this short 45 minute tour. The tour takes your into areas you normally cannot visit if just walking around the mosque by yourself.

Our tour guide Shayha was extremely informative and kind in answering all of our questions and taking us behind the rope to some of the cooler vantage points in the mosque.

It was very well organised and marshalled and there are some incredible views particularly from the outside. Personally I didn't think the interior was as stunning but still worth a visit.

I went to Sheikh Zayed grand mosque with my mother, uncle and aunt. We caught the 8pm tour on Wed the 20th of Jan. It was our destiny and luck to meet Mr. ABDELRAHMAN ALALI our tour guide. What a gem and a gentleman. I have bought visitors to the mosque multiple times. Whilst I must admit every time the tours were wonderful and so were the tour guides, both lovely, brilliant Ladies and gentlemen, this was truly special ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you ABDELRAHMAN.

What a beautiful mosque. May you rest in peace Sheikh Zayed, may your wish of bringing people and their cultures come true and may your grandchildren all be like Abdelrahman.

Amazing place to visit which gives out free informational tours about the entire mosque. If you can visit it during the day and at night. I personally preferred at night because you can see the mosque in all of its glory and the lighting of the mosque represents the phases of the moon! So cool! My tour guide Abdulrhman alali was very informative and super friendly one of the best I've ever had. He truly is someone who loves to teach and help others. The tours are free, informative and well worth it!!!

I visted this site twice in the past and it was simply fantastic. Now they transformed it in a money-creating machine :-(
You park close to the mosque but then you must walk back 10 minutes to get to the visitors centre where 1. You register to enter the mosque (you qr-code will be checked again and again 2. You must buy a cover-up in what is a huge undergroud mall, which in my opinion is in contradiction with religious principles!!!!
Then you walk for at least 15 minutes to discover that you can visit the mosque only walking on ugly platforms which cover most of the beautiful floors and allow you to see certain things only from afar.
Really not worth it anymore! Such a pity!

At the beginning everyone needs to register in queue.
After it compulsory to buy long clothes to ware of approx AED 45 to AED 100. If person is non Muslim, what is purpose of his purchase?

We've not been able to visit the place and just took photos from outside of mosque.

The guided tour was wonderful. Abdul-Rakhim was a wonderful and interesting guide.
On Fridays the mosque closes from 12 to the afternoon for the public, so come early to enjoy the visit without a rush.
