The Grand Mosque (Arabic: مسجد دبي الكبير) is a mosque in Dubai, Emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is located between the textile souk and the Dubai Museum close to a small stream in the Bur Dubai area. Originally built in 1900, demolished and built again in 1960, it then underwent a further rebuilding in 1998 (the present one). It now holds up to 1,200 worshippers. Non-Muslims are not permitted entry in mosque, except the minaret where photography is allowed. The mosque is the hub of Dubai’s religious and cultural life.
We made it there close to mid afternoon and there were still small groups venturing inside to enjoy the ambiance. Was a bit tough battling the sun (visited Mid August) however the Curated Cultural tour that departed every hour on the hour definitely made the visit. We were taken around by our very informative guide Waleed who was an absolute gracious host and had the history of the mosque on his fingertips. It’s beautiful, during the day (couldn’t begin to imagine the experience during the evening) and best of all it was completely FREE! Wonderful experience.
