Description

One of the world’s largest and most celebrated Mosques, the Grand Mosque of Sheikh Zayed is a wonderful Abu Dhabi attraction that lures people near and far. This tour is a great opportunity for those seeking to explore this amazing testimony of Islamic craftsmanship.

Depart Dubai and journey to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi by modern air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort on the 90-minute drive with your professional driver/guide (if option booked). On arrival, marvel at the 8th largest mosque in the world.

Spread over 30 acres, the magnificent structure took more than a decade to build and now stands as a showcase for the United Arab Emirate’s Islamic cultural heritage. Roam around the site, where up to 40,000 worshippers can be accommodated at any one time.

Marvel at priceless features, such as the huge Swarovski crystal chandeliers, floral mosaics and artifacts of gold, silver and marble. Be amazed by the gigantic carpet in the main prayer hall. Measuring 60,570 square feet and weighing 35 tons, the carpet was made in Iran and is the result of the toil of thousands of carpet weavers over 2 years!

Take stunning souvenir photos of the complex and its awe-inspiring architecture, and get a better appreciation of the vision of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late president of the UAE and the mastermind behind the mosque. Depart Abu Dhabi and journey back to Dubai for drop off at your hotel or designated location.

Wonderdul driver and tour narrative, very knowledgeable and spoke throughout the arring drive and during our private tour. We were picked up timely, in a lovely new 8 person passanger clean SUV. We were provided cold water and women xonservative full dress and veil to visit the mosque. Golf carts help transit visitirs through the tunnel mall and we by passed lines to enter. The heat is oppressive in Jube but the mall and indoor Mosque blasts the air conditioning. The Mosque, is simply over the top in size, minerettes, domes, columns, archways, white gleaming marble, intricate tiling of flowers in varied colors, multi chandeliers of fine crystal and murano glass. Plentry of photo opps and selfies, but one must abide by cultural rules such as no hi fives, public hugging or peace signs and other rules. Allow a good five plus hours for this activity if coming from Dubai.

Knowledgeable and professional tour guides. From pickup to drop-off, the tour was exactly as described. Our guide provided an abundance of information regarding the history and culture of the UAE. Thank you for a great experience visiting the Mosque.

It is a spectacular building; one of the most beautiful in the world. The organisation to stream thousands of people a day through the building is also first rate. But it is only a beautiful building, There is no history to learn, no artwork to see. Once you have seen it and taken your photos, there is nothing more to do. It is also a long 2 hour ride to get there from Dubai, so it is most of a day for a short viewing.
