The highlight of our trip to Abu Dhabi. I definitely recommend doing the free guided tour which was very interesting and informative. Thanks to our great guide Abdullah. On the tour your guide takes you to parts of the mosque that other visitors aren’t allowed to go to. My daughter and I had to wear the Abayahs provided but they were comfortable and not as hot as I thought they would be. The Mosque is amazing. Beautiful and opulent and made from materials from many parts of the world.

A must visit for all religions, the only caveat is that one need to cover themselves to respect the religion,since it’s also a place of worship, it’s worth it

There are some awfully rich muslim rulers in the world today. It seems they all want to set a trace in the history and compete in building the most beautiful, the most expensive and the most impressive mosque to honour Allah. We have seen New Mosque in Oman, New Mosque in Brunei and New Mosque Abu Dhabi. We are deeply impressed of all theese buildings and have wondered: How can they build pieces like this in todays world with todays prices. When we saw New mosque in Abu Dhabi we decided: Late Sheik Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan is the winner. His Mosque is the biggest, the most beautiful and obviously the most expensive. A lot of the decorations are made in the same way as they made Taj Mahal. They have carved out peaces in floor and pillars and roof and everywhere and replaced the marble with semipreciuos stones. Here you can see the worlds biggest handmade carpet, the worlds biggest chandelier and much more. The Mosque covers an area of 5 footballarenas. We are very impressed. At the end we wanted to visit the toilet. Then escalators took you deep down in the building. Downthere we found deliciuos washingrooms, mosaiks on the walls and absolutely 1:st class facilities. We have seen a lot but we cant think of anything built by man that is as beautiful as this.

Absolutely stunning mosque and a great culture immersion for the family. We went around sunset which was beautiful and a little less hot - try to time your visit to hear the call to prayer - breAthtaking.
As an aside, the gift shop is also very affordable for Abu Dhabi souvenirs.
