This was definitely the highlight of our trip. Nothing about this amazing attraction disappoints. It's truly spectacular and to think that the Sheik gave this as a gift to the world is unbelievable. I'd highly recommend doing the guided tour as you learn so much about the place and the sheik. The mosque is stunning by day and by night... More

There is a dress code for women visiting the mosque which our travel agent did not inform us in advance. As a result of this my wife and daughter could not enter the mosque. You need scarf and full sleeves shirt (non transparent) and full pants/covering. Net only face should be open. Great place to visit. It is fully madeof... More

The Hilton arranged transportation for us to visit the Abu Dhabi Mosque. It was very impressive. I am not very religious but I was amazed by its scale and beauty They provided the gown for my wife to wear and it left us with a unique insight in to the religion

A must see mosque in Abu Dhabi. Beautifully decorated throughout and a host of some 'world records' (largest this and that). Time your visit carefully as with all places the heat can get overwhelming. The nearby memorial seemed like a nice detour but was totally out of the question during the daytime hours as it requires a short unsheltered walk... More

This mosque is absolutely beautiful. It has amazing detail and is very well kept. You must be dressed properly to enter, but they will supply you with clothing so there's no reason to miss a visit to this incredible building.

Breath taking ..! The Mosque is Grand in itself. The architecture is absolutely beautiful and it's one of the best places at AD to spend some time walking around admiring the architecture. Women have to be fully covered to respect the local customs & the mosque provides a covering during the security check at the entrance. The Mosque has scheduled... More
