  • The place is definitely recommended visiting. It is a beautifully crafted engineering marvel. The whole team behind deserves appreciation. Visit website szgmc.gov.ae and do booking confirmation before reaching here for a faster entry to the place, that was the procedure when we visited. There is strict dress code in place and details available in website. ladies to wear dress that cover properly including the hands. Dress can also be purchased from shops inside. Ample underground parking is available separately for visitors at walkable distance to entrance. There are direction boards available after you enter the place. Day times can be bit hot. If they can come up with some arrangement to guide the visitors without random security personal interference, the visit would be a better experience overall. They are everywhere. For me it was amazing
  • It's very nice architectural creation and design. What a great and Big mosque i ever seen. It's great pleasure to visit there. I seen they keep it too clean and Attractive . And found silence over there. Also their is somehow strict rules. Ladies need to cover hair with scarf else they didn't allow . Also while taking picture also not allowed to take pictures without scarf. Else security will your memories. We visited in day time so now Surely i will visit that place in evening time to see it's glorious beauty.
