  • We didn't plan on coming here. We stopped because we saw ancient buildings along the way. The area is not large, admission is free. It would be better to read the story before you come here. We were unprepared in this regard, so we were not particularly impressed. And then there's the moment. I'm sorry, but upstairs, for some reason, it smells like a toilet, knocks it down just.

  • Must visit this distinctive structure if you love history A very old masjid made in 1446.....very well preserved despite being built by stone & mud bricks. It is still open to pray in from 9am to 5pm
  • Al Badiyah Mosque is a small mosque yet full of history, and it's very different from the mosques you see anywhere in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. It's a refreshing place with such great view of the sea and the surroundings of Fujairah. It is easy to locate and can be seen immediately since it is only situated along the road. For tourists, remember to drop by their office to borrow Abaya cloak before going inside the mosque. i Inspired by a photo of the Al Badiyah mosque, we saw in the Museum of Islamic Civilisation in Sharjah, we got in our car and drove to Al Badiyah. It is easy to find and parking was easy as well. We spent an our there, it was a beautiful visit. The drive through the mountains is quite impressive, the colourful stalls with all the fruits.. It was one of the best day trips in the UAE
