The grand mosque in based on the outskirts of abu dhabi and generally people goes on this tour along with Ferrai World.

It is beautiful crafted mosque with precious stones and chandelier put on the roof and the wall. Mirror like marble and you won't feel hot when you go in mosque with barefoot.

Surrounding waters and greenery are just breathtaking.

Big Dome at the and marble like white color give a refreshing feeling.

it is 1.30 hours drive from dubai, start early so that you can cover this quickly and the move to ferrari world.

There are no entry ticket, if women wearing modest cothes then they have to put hijab to cover their body from neck to bottom.

One of the most beautiful places I have seen. So magical. Free to enter. Be prepared to take off your shoes and wear a cover. So beautiful inside and out. It would probably be good to go with someone who knows the history, share the rituals that happen, and the meaning of different things. Please be respectful inside. This place feels like it floats. It also reminds me of the movie Aladdin.

If you find yourself in the United Arab Emirates then a visit to Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque – Sheikh Zayed is a must because it’s certainly the Grandest Mosque I’ve ever seen and to be honest it’s worth planning a trip to the UAE just to see it!
IT’S FREE TO ENTER
Unlike many tourist attractions, its completely free to enter so there is no reason to miss this beautiful mosque when you are in UAE!
Any time of day is a good time to visit the mosque, however due to the heat you’re best visiting early morning or late evening.
Enjoy the culture, learn something about the religion.
I recommend this place for any age and any religion.

Be sure ladies to have a long trouser, or they will offer a piece of fabric at the entrance, as well another pashmina to cover your head and shoulders, you will enjoy the view of this beautiful building
