We listened to a guide, which I would recommend as it helped us to understand the characteristics of the place. He explained all the features and the meaning behind things that you might have missed if you had just... More

We initially passed the mosque by night which was stunning, but by day this mosque is incredible. There is a dress code, which is expected for men and women. The building is serene and beautiful. The scale of the building is surreal. The amount of white marble and gold is unbelievable, but the architecture is just mind blowing. A definite... More

We took the sunset tour of the mosque and from the start, we were treated to a lively, informative and entertaining discourse from the irrepressible Omar. I have done several London tours with acclaimed Blue Guides and Omar's knowledge, enthusiasm and wit far exceeded any of them. The mosque is exceptional from an architectural perspective, the bling is jaw dropping,... More

This is something special and a must to see. Its design and attention to detail is unbelievable. Take a tour (no cost) and spend sixty minutes being pleasantly told without pressure the history, meaning and purpose of the construction of this amazing building. Something you will never forget !

Before returning to work, i have decided to visit this grandeur. Since i am living on the city, getting there is a breeze. Just take any 3 digit buses that roam around Abu Dhabi and definitely it will pass to the last bus stop before going to Mussafah and just a 10 minute walk you're there! The feeling was so... More

This beautiful Mosque deserves a visit from every traveler to the United Arab Emirates. When we were staying in Dubai we made a three day trip to Abu Dhabi and I was surprised about the magnificent decorations inside and outside the Mosque.

Huge is the only word that comes to mind when you see this. I was told 60 thousand people worship here during Ramadan. It has some spectacular chandeliers. Surely should be included in your itinerary
