All religions welcome, nice historical building. Free taxi service from security area to outside the Mosque. Able to offer prayers. Security very tough.

One of the most elegantly built modern mosques in the world. A must view when in Abu Dhabi. Guided tour is available. Good location for taking photos for memory and for family and friends.

Absolutely breathtaking. This is a must see if in Abu Dhabi! Ladies be warned... The abayas provided trap some amount of heat so I would take a scarf to cover you head with and avoid wearing these. In 45 degree heat I struggled!

As Norm said above, its about 90 minutes from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Traffic is rarely an issue in my experience so no need to account for that really. We spent about 2-3 hours at the mosque. In that time we did the free... More
