  • The architecture is definitely magnificent to visit! I would complain though that we need to buy / bring instead of borrowing the dress before we could enter, and the shops nearby were just asking...

  • The mosque has been on my bucket list for 10+ years and it did not disappoint when we finally made it. Make sure you book online for a guided tour to save valuable time on arrival. The commentary...

  • 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
  • Nice place! Good architecture and very beautiful. The dress code is important. Men- don’t wear animal prints and make sure you were a long sleeve top and pant(no shorts). Women-wear something that covers you full(including your head). You can enter here even if you are not a Muslim but you have to follow the rules(make sure to follow the dress code if you are a Muslim or not). We went here on Ramadan(2019) and that time they gave food to all on Ramadan(I am not sure if it is there now). I hope this review was helpful.
