Like it.. It amazing to visit if ur in town for both Muslims and non-Muslims.. The out side are great to walk.. At entry point with great security and professional staff they give dresses (if needed out of respect to the place of worship for Muslims) free of charge that are clean nice and kind of cute..

There is a gift shop and a coffee place inside.. Talking pictures walking around is allow..

Dress code for females is there

Rest all is great experience......

One time visit is must

Lovely on the outside and inside. The ladies are obliged to wear the overall that is provided by the mosque. Always packed with visitors. The atmosphere was civil and quite pleasant. Definitely worth a visit.

This was the first stop on our Abu Dhabi tour, and what an amazing piece of architecture it was. Truly stunning and a must for all who visit Abu Dhabi. We had a guided tour which was very interesting as we learnt all the finer details of this mosque. Just make sure you are appropriately dressed and it will be an experience to remember.

Large and opulent this mosque is visible from a long way away. As with many places of worship there is a strict dress code. For those who don’t comply they have garments to borrow for your visit. Flattering they were not, but fortunately we didn’t need them.

Like all mosques the interior is very simple. Despite the great size the simplicity somehow conveys a sense of peace, even with thousands of visitors passing through during a day. Be sure to check opening times as it is closed to visitors at certain times.

The only downside was the chaotic queue for taxis. What appeared to be a hundred plus taxis but those at the front of the queue refused us as our hotel was too close, and they told us to get into a taxi that was just dropping someone off because having not queued to get a fare they would be willing to take us. Several other visitors had the same problem. Fine as we were leaving when there were still lots of people arriving. It wouldn’t have been fun if there were no incoming taxis.
