    We have got the opportunity to visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi from Dubai. We were impressed with a great architecture used in this landmark. A must see when you visit UAE.

    Breathtaking at sunset + night time. Don't rush through it, take your time to absorb the architecture. Before you know it, it will be sundown and the mosque will be lit up beautifully.

    Such an extraordinary mosque. A must visit for tourists and locals! Make sure you plan your visit just before sunset to witness the mosque's beauty during the day and the night too!

    The final resting place of the legendary Shaikh Zayed, the mosque is one the most brilliant landmarks this country has to offer. Visits in the night time are very different vs the day. Mesmerizing.

    SZGM opens at 9 and I came just after 8. Don't fret when you arrive too early, they have a coffee shop inside to chill while you wait for the opening time. Thank goodness!

    Beautiful mosque! Check timings beforehand on their website for entry as well as yours. Don't stress about clothes too much - dress modest and you can also get abayas to wear at the mosque for free!

    I fell in love with how beautiful this mosque is! The intricate design and how everything is made of gold blew my mind away. Ladies have to come here conservatively dress to be allowed in.

    Free to enter for anyone! Women not wearing an abaya will most likely be asked to go down and rent one to enter. Amazingly beautiful inside and outside. A must visit.

    It's free entrance to the mosque, as with all holy sites remember to dress & act appropriately. To rent an abaya for women or thobe for men, bring a photo I.D like a driving license *Not Passport*.

    The place is so huge and when you're there, you can somehow feel blessed and cleansed of all your sins! Worth checking out a good 30 minutes to an hour. Over that, nah.

    A must visit place, very peaceful and spiritual. Open for both moslims and non-moslims but females have to be conservative on what they wear for the visit,as per Islamic traditions.

    Seeing it in the morning when the mosque is in sunlight is amazing. If you enter from parking lot sides, worth walking out and down main entrance steps to see the front.

    If you are taking old or disabled persons advisable to take a wheel chair. It is better if the mgt can arrange some wheel chairs at the entrance and collect it as done in malls now a days.
