Must visit while the sun sets

A beautiful mosque. Breathtaking experience. The audioguide is free and very useful to tour at your own pace. Keep at least 2 hours to witness the beauty of this enormous mosque. I went by myself, had a wonderful experience. I was wearing loose full length shirt and jeans but because they were ripped jeans I was given an Abaya to wear. It just gets very hot under it so if the weather isn't good, ensure you wear appropriate clothing . Highly recommend!

Really Grand!

It is a huge Mosque and very popular among tourists. Mosque is very beautiful and clean. Wear decent clothes and your body should be fully covered. You can expect a long line here at the entrance.

The great grand mosque!

It is such a beautiful grand mosque that you will go out of words to describe it. The chandelier is breathtaking and the design on the marble floor and wall is amazing. The inside of the entire mosque is covered with world largest carpet and it is very beautifully made. By looking at the architecture of this mosque it revels the advancement of human development. If you travel to UAE, one should not miss it.

Visit not to be missed

The Sheikh Zayed Mosque or the Grand Mosque as it is commonly called has been really built on a grand scale. It is stated to be built over a period of around ten years. The mosque has a large number of domes and the walls, pillars and the roof are embellished with great artwork. The mosque is the chief place of worship by the local people. Persons entering the mosque have to observe proper dress code. For the women especially it is important to cover their arms and legs. Our cab driver was resourceful enough to carry a couple of Burqas in his cab trunk which came in handy for my wife. The guide at the mosque takes visitors around stopping and explaining things at intervals. The trip lasts about 45 minutes.Visit to the mosque is not to be missed.

One of Biggest Mosque

This was also included in our one day tour of Abu Dhabi. My wife dress was some short from hand. They did not allowed and we also were not much interested so we seen from outside. However while waiting other tourist of our bus, I went in to complex for using wash room. This is called 2nd biggest mosque of world next to Mecca.

Breathtakingly beautiful

If you are an admirer of the beauty of Taj Mahal, u will certainly fall in love with the beauty of this mosque. We visited the mosque while on our way to Abu Dhabi. The building with its architecture n grandeur is breathtakingly beautiful. After a thorough security check, we entered the premises. Remember to wear decent clothes that covers arms, legs n head otherwise they give u burqas n head wear which takes up a lot time. Also remember to behave in a decent manner. I mean. Public show of love is strictly prohibited. The structure is big n pure white with small water bodies outside. Inside is a huge space leading to the door of mosque. And from there on our eyes were wide opened with the beautiful doors, work done on walls, the unbelievably large chandeliers, the world's largest single piece carpet etc. I hadn't seen so much beauty in any given day of my life. Other than the beauty, the place was all about peace and serenity.

Very very beautiful marvel of architect

A must see Sheikh Zayed Mosque is open to general public in Abu Dhabi. A real great architect, design and highest quality of marble, engraving designs, carpeting and gold design you will fall in love. But one thing to note that there is dress restrictions for the persons entering the mosque. The men should wear full pant and shirts, ladies should wear full sleeve and full pant with head covered and also your clothes should not be transparent even on arms. Please wear the clothes as per their requirement otherwise guards will stop you at the entrance.
