It is amazing piece of art and the grande mosque is unique in its way. It feels so comforting to be there and looking at the details of the calligraphy and decor. A must visit place in the afternoon.

If you enjoy wonderful architecture then you must visit this iconic masterpiece. Acres of pure marble entwined into a beautiful mosque.

Usually other religious people are not allowed inside the mosque but this is one of the few mosques in the world where they allow you to visit... so don't miss it if you come to Abu Dhabi.

The 8th largest mosque in the world. Very beautiful with intricate work. Please make sure you are dressed appropriately. Women need to be fully covered - hands, legs and head fully covered, men - need to wear anything below knees.

Amazing, cannot not go see it. Beautiful, white construction that shimmers in the sunlight. So much to see. Women will need to hire a fully dress (process well set up, leave ID to pick up dress) and cover their hair to be enable to go into the mosque.

A must see, an impressive sight and stunning architecture. Entrance is free as is the loan of an abaya if not adequately covered.

The mosque is an art out of this world. It is the most beautiful building you can experience. It should be one of the wonders of the world. Excellence at its best.

Very beautiful and welcoming mosque. Pro tip: a few times a day they offer free one-hour guided tours. Guides do a good job bringing the building and its architecture to life...and you get to meet an actual Emirati!
