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.

We had issues with some of our group members regarding the outfit. The security is strict, the abaya or fully covering clothes are a must. Ankle/wrist to neck and not tight or brightly coloured (although i saw some Asian group going in with ladies dressed in light colours). If you do not have proper outfit there is abaya to buy...

According to the guide, this is the only mosque in the middle east non-muslims can go inside. It is well worth a visit. 3 huge beautiful crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling. The decorative leaves and flowers on the marble walls compliment the huge carpet. No expense spared, it is stunning. Be prepared for security. Your bags will be searched.... More

I feel great and lucky having got an opportunity to visit this Abu Dhabi Mosque so elegantly designed and tastefully built. One of the worlds best place and every person must see it in his life time.

This is a must see place in Abu Dhabi. A grand mosque of all mosques. Not only to Muslims but to everyone. The building with stunning architecture, mosaic decorations and grandeur chandeliers. But ladies need to wear long dresses and cover their head and be respectful.
