Very beautiful place to visit in Abu Dhabi. I highly recommend to go there after sunset to enjoy the wonderful lightning of the Mosque and its magnitude. Ladies get black abaya dress with hijab and enjoy walking thru those corridors of columns and grand Sahan (courtyard) to the heart of the Mosque. Don't miss out unbelievable beauty of stained-glass windows,... More

This mosque was amazing! Such a big and beautiful place. And a free admission! You do need to dress properly to get in but you can borrow some clothes from there. Absolutely a place worth to visit!

Very big and beautiful mosque, with the Quran recitation and being inside you will feel peaceful, Abu Dhabi doesn't have too much so for sure this is the must see in Abu Dhabi

Truly exceptionel place, where the ambitions - on behalf of the Emirates - of the Kalif are very evident. 3rd largest mosque in the world, but it must be the most impressive based upon the amazing construction, architecture, materials, arts and decoration. Everything is big but also characteristic and very beautiful. It is a must see.

Visited with my girlfriend in mid-Feb. Took a cab from Dubai there and back. Great place to visit. It was interesting, free and the walking tour was quite informative. Ladies will be given a hijab to wear and need to cover their hair at all times. I quite liked it and wouldn't have minded wearing my own. We spent 1... More

I was on a business trip in Abu Dhabi in February 2017 and I visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. My colleague and myself arrived to the Mosque around 6 pm and spent approx. 1,5 h there. As soon as it's getting darker the lights are turning on and the colours start changing with every minute. It's beautiful. Practical information:... More

Arriving at the international airport you will drive by the Mosque on the way into town. At night the blue lighting immediately make the mosque an iconic image of AbuDhabi - and it deserves this distinction. Take the tour, which is in English and enjoy the wonderful lines, lightness and openness of this moslem holy place of worship. So glad... More

The Mosque does not have the history and the feel of the Istanbul Mosques but the sheer size makes it an impressive visit. A must see, specially just 30 minutes before sunset, you will get perfect photography opportunities at this time. Also liked that it is very well organized for Tourists too see, you never feel you are imposing.

Well worth visiting towards the end of the day to join the 5pm free tour. The guide spoke excellent English and was keen to share.
