Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Whiter than snow, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is an incomparable architectural place of worship. It’s not just massive but it is detailed in every way, every corner, every arches, every domes and every minarets. Wherever and whatever your eyes laid on, things and designs are seemed to be expensive, impressive and illusive.

At the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Remember These:

Visitors are expected to be covered from head to toe, especially women. That doesn’t mean you’ve got wear a niqab. Women are advised to wear the abaya (a black, full-length outer garment) when entering the premises. Men aren’t allowed to wear shorts. However, you need not worry just in case you’re not dressed properly. You can rent a thobe (for men) and an abaya (for women) at the basement parking. Bring your ID or passport which you can claim back later.

When inside, you just can’t walk around and take all the photos you want. There are certain areas where you’re not even allowed to stand–even if there’s no cordon / cord barrier. Watchful guards are everywhere. So you better behave.
