A must see in Jeddah. It feels great while standing beside Masjid, look at the see and you feel like its really floating. Only drawback is need more attention by Authorities to maintain cleanliness inside and outside of the Masjid.

It's a mosque with good view facing to the Red Sea. Unfortunately, the toilet is not really clean and also the yard full of seller around. But overall it's a good place to visit (and taking photos) when in Jeddah.

This mosque is a great place for expats to take photos, just make sure to be discreet, wear your abaya and hijab, and don't point the camera at women.
