One of the most beautiful and expensively built structures I’ve been to. Toured the place in the morning (I would love to visit at night to see the effect of artificial lighting). The Mosque is open to tourist from Saturday to Thursdays.

The biggest Mosque I've seen! I went there with other 5 people. It was a day trip from Dubai. Free entrance. If you don't wear the appropriate clothes, don't worry. They will give you there. You have to visit!
