As someone who has seen many mosques throughout the Middle East, I believe that the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is definitely one of the biggest and prettiest. Like all mosques, there appears to be a lot to see because of its size, but it is...More

Yes, non Muslim tourists can visit the Mosque. Only time not allowed are during weekly services and holidays. Women are required to have arms covered to wrist, long loose pants or skirt covering to ankles and full head cover. If you do not have proper clothes, they will provide a full one-piece covering. All visitors are also required to remove their shoes to visit the Mosque.
We highly recommend arriving to participate in a guided tour. The guides are excellent and the experience is more complete that just borrowing a headset. You are also escorted through the interior which other visitors are not. The tour is free and you can ask all your questions. This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Middle east and I highly recommend the visit and the important of being respectful during your time there.
