Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi Reviews

  • An impressive place. It's top notch in architecture and designed to provide for a staggering number of people without dimming the experience for any individual, certainly opulent in its delivery. It's very well looked after and caters for all. I'd suggest a tour if your looking for the history (free). Additional attire is provided for those who may not be properly prepared. Big bus has a stop here if you're looking at transport options. Also this is a holy place, so please remember to follow the local customs. Certainly a top spot to visit.

  • One of the most magnificent mosque in the world. The architecture, the grandeur and the look is out of the world. It’s very magistic clean and well maintained. Irrespective of the number of guests visiting the prayers are carried out peacefully. The most important note is to maintain the dress code. Men and women both need to be fully covered. And it is important for the women to cover their heads. For ladies a full length loose dress with full sleeves is the best option with a scarf. Loose pants or tights/leggings with jeans is fine. Modesty is the word. If you are not dressed appropriately there is arrangement to provide proper clothing free of charge. Respect the dress code and feel the peace while you listen to the Islamic prayer.

  • That is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mosque I have ever seen. Religious places allover the world are mainly work of art and people spend ages and huge effort at constructing them and this sometimes over kill the whole point. Sheikh Zayed mosque shows exactly how to do it right and still make it one of the most beautiful mosque on earth. If you visit UAE 🇦🇪 that is one place should be on top of your list, regardless your religious beliefs. Try to plan your visit at night to see true beauty. You will thank me later.

  • The eight largest mosque in the world with a capacity of 40,000 people at a time to perform Salah. The design of this architectural beauty is done by a Syrian architect. Located in Abu Dhabi, capital city of United Arab Emirates. It's extraordinary architectural design attracts a lot of religious people. A soothing feel, you will get here.

  • I was in awe! This place of worship, so beautiful. The attention to detail, the cleanliness. It was an amazing experience. Pictures simply cannot capture the beauty in person. I am so glad I got to visit such a wonder!
