This place is really beautiful and a must see if you are visiting Abu Dhabi. For visitors, you need to wear a floor length gown ; they provide you with white ones for the men and brown hooded ones for the women on the way in and you need to remove your shoes before going into the actual mosque. Once... More

No matter what your religion or beliefs this is a visit that should not be missed. Architecturally alone it is a wonder. Gleaming pure white marble and built on a massive scale you need time to see it properly. I regret I did not see as much as I wanted as the walk was long and the day very hot... More

Well worth a visit, architecture & finish of the Mosque is amazing. Access is free with a range of opening hours. Tours are also available at certain times of the day.

This building is architecturally stunning. It is incredibly well kept, being cleaned constantly at every corner. I'd recommend seeing it twice if given the opportunity, both during the day and when the sun sets to truly appreciate the building and it's majesty. All rules should be obeyed and it isn't an issue, after all this is a place of worship... More

One of the largest and most beautiful religious institutions in the world. It takes about 1 hour to view the mosque. They are very particular about clothing. Men are not allowed to wear shorts and women need to wear burqa which is provided at the entrance.

This grand mosque is magnificent and breath taking, a must visit by all. The arrangements of movement of tourists and the security at the mosque are very efficiently managed. The area is too big and it will be better if some arrangements are made for the old people and handicaps for accessing the mosque from the public transport.

Master piece of architecture! Must visit place. Design, construction, flooring, tiles, marbles, carpets everything is amazing. This is huge and very beautiful place. Dress code – Its very strict for everyone. Females should cover head, hands till wrist and legs till ankle. Good part is, Mosque provides abra for females whose dress doesn’t comply to mosque rules. Dress is provided... More

Great tour by Omar and beautiful mosque. Better to go just before sunset as it was extrememly hot and you can see the mosque domes both in the light and during the dark.
