Good place to visit again and agin. A very peaceful place. Must go there in full clothes, some burqas are also available for one time use. Well within the city limits and can be visited in 20-40 mins. Do not carry food items.

I visited The Grand Mosque on an opportunity impulse and was glad that I did. I am an open minded westerner and not religious in any way. The Mosque is a fantastic building and the 'tour' allowed to visitors access throughout. Visitors in attire not considered suitable are asked to cover up and tasteful dress is provided for this purpose.... More

Visually stunning, incredible tile and glass. Very strict modest dress required for women, but they have abayas to borrow if you turn up under-dressed.

I've seen a lot of mosques around the world and this one is absolutely one of my favorites. The parking and getting to the mosque is a bit of a hassle, especially if it's a hot day (ie April - October), but that is because of the sheer size of the place. Once you get inside, it's nothing short of... More

Visited in Feb. 2017 with group of friends. It was a spiritually lifting experience. A lot of planning and attention to detail went into this creation. If learning and experiencing different cultures is your thing, this is one place worth visiting. Never seen anything like it. Could compare it to Vatican but different.

What a beautiful building! You must take the free tour of the mosque and learn properly all about it. It takes about 45 mins and it is well worth it. Women make sure you are well covered up. You can borrow things if not but it is good to come prepared. Be aware that the cafe is quite pricey so... More

A simply beautiful complex. Even the bathrooms are worth a visit. Coffee shop on grounds and shop for souvenirs. Wander the grounds, if you can stay for sunset do it or go to the Souk area around the Shangri La hotel across thevriver abd watch the colours change from there. You can also have a drink while watching the sunset... More

Very grandiose, majestic and the architecture is amazing especially at night, the lighting made it more so stunning at night. . Whenever we visit Abu Dhabi for a time off. Me and hubby always make sure to visit Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Very clean, well-organized and very huge property. For the ladies, make sure you're wearing a modest dress otherwise there's... More
