We went on the tour of the mosque that is conducted by local guides working for the mosque. This was my 3rd time bringing visitors to the mosque and every time it is very informative. You get to learn a lot of the mosque, the muslem faith and local Arab tribe culture. The mosque itself is breathtakingly beautiful and worth... More

Andare ad Abu Dhabi e non visitate al Moschea è un peccato, è bellissima e la vista non prende tanto tempo, ma fa capire un po della cultura locale. Richiede adattamento agli usi locali in termini di abbigliamento e comportamenti It is a must see if you are in Abu Dhabi, it is very nice, the visit doesn't take too... More

Another must if you visit Abu Dhabi. Probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. As you drive there it is breathtaking seeing it for the first time. I would suggest ladies be fairly conservative with your dress. You will be asked to wear or borrow an abaya (free of charge) as you enter. There are guided... More

The Grand Mosque is truly a must see in Abu Dhabi. It is simply breathtaking in its beauty. The incredible sense of coolness and peace is a true delight. It is well worth timing your visit with one of the guided tours but if you miss it, the self guided audio tours provide great insight to the building and architecture... More

This Mosque is quite spectacular. This is a must see attraction in Abu Dhabi. The grounds are beautiful, and the opportunity to go inside the mosque cannot be missed. The detail in the mosaics, and the craftsmanship that has gone into the making of the chandeliers and all the other fixtures is something to behold. If you are female you... More

Free entry, once in you can walk around the Mosque at your leisure. Seems no expense was spared in building this Mosque and is very grand. You are given clothes to wear if female to cover your head which are clean. Would have liked more information when going around.

This is a must visit when you in Abu Dhabi. It is a treasure and a marvel. Was totally wowed by the sight and I felt that it was so worth seeing because in 100 years from now it will still be a marvel. Would suggest to allow about 20 minutes to get through security at entrance. There is a... More

A stunning architectural feat that's definitely worth seeing. The light is especially pretty at twilight. Women, dress carefully. Skirts or trousers must fully cover ankles and touch your feet. Sleeves must cover wrists. High neck tops. Scarf to cover hair. Nonetheless definitely worth the visit.

Just the sight of this grand Mosque was so pleasing to the eyes!! Security was strict but very polite. We did not want to leave...and was happy to be able to stay for late night prayers. Will certainly visit again:)

I recently had a 3-day stopover in Dubai and used one of the days to go on a tour of Abu Dhabi. The main highlight was the Sheikh Zayed mosque. It more than met expectations. The only problem was being able to capture the scale and magnitude in photos. Well worth the visit!
