Amazing experience, a must see for all visitors. Parking a bit far for young children though and some construction going on for expanding the mosque.

My wife and I visited the Grand Mosque while having a short break in Abu Dhabi. I have always fancied visiting the Mosque after seeing images and hearing about it. All these things do it no justification until you see it with your own eyes. Upon arrival we were met at security by friendly staff. There is clothing available for... More

This mosque was exquisite! So beautiful a must see while visiting here. Even my son, age 7, was in awe and talked about how amazing it is. Women : Be sure to wear long sleeves and pants.

After seeing the very stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque many times as I've entered Abu Dhabi, nothing really prepared me for how spectacular it would be close up. The scale is immense, the detail and marble is absolutely sublime. Arriving before 1 hour before sunset gave me many options for photography. The security as you enter is thorough and pleasant, bag... More
