Beautiful... At sunset.

Needs some serious TLC, exterior looks unkempt, surrounding area pretty grim, not very clean. My wife was reading the information board and was told, not asked, to leave by a bad mannered taxi driver.

Located in a nice spot and I am sure a wonderful spot during sunset, but certainly not the most beautiful most in Jeddah.

We went to this Masjid a rahma in sep 2016 after hajj. it is probably the most beautiful masjid in Jeddah. Looks awesome in the night time, and the inside of the masjid is totally speechless.

the waters are so clean that you can see the bottom of the sea and the whole atmosphere is really calm, and somehow spiritual , you also can enjoy the beautiful sunset view

It's a nice mosque, clean from the inside, scented with bakhour, cold inside. I just prayed there maghreb. However i didn't notice any fancy architecture.

The floating mosque in Jeddah is a mosque that is built inside shallow water of the cornish with land access. You can spend an afternoon around the mosque sipping tea, enjoying the sea and waves scenary, and watching the kids play in the nearby gardens.

Distinct and Beautiful White Floating Mosque located on Jeddah corniche with sea water underneath.I strongly recommend all visitors (including Umra visitors) to see and pray in this Mosque as it is easily accessible and has a unique character
