Visit Jumeirah Mosque, a place of worship and cultural center that places particular emphasis on introducing Islam to non-Muslim guests. Built in the late 1970s, the mosque represents a traditional Fatimid style of architecture, with tall twin minarets on either side of a large central dome. Join a guided tour to see the mosque's attractive interior and learn about the traditions and history of Islam in the country and across the region. As opposed to many places of worship in the city, photography is allowed here, so make sure to bring your camera.

  • The only mosque in Dubai open to non-muslims, Jumeirah Mosque has tours daily. Bookings are recommended but not required provided a timely arrival at the entrance to the mosque at 09:45 am is met from...  more »
  • Actually, you can see this in 5 min, but it was good to take a tour, had a good explanation about Mosque and Muslim culture, adding to some snack and drinks.  more »
  • A little disappointed because the mosque is small and it was soon made the turn. Explanation in English however interesting and warm welcome.

  • I enjoyed the tour at this mosque. Entrance fee is AED25 and the tour starts at 10:00. Best to be there a bit earlier. You actually have to go to the building next to the mosque to get your ticket. The guide started the tour with how the wash before entering the mosque (you can watch/participate). You get appropriate clothing before you enter the mosque if what you’re wearing isn’t suitable. Once inside, you can walk around and admire the mosque. You’re allowed to take pictures/videos all the time. After this, everyone sits on the carpet (there are chairs as well) and the guide talked about the 5 pillars of Islam. He showed us how they pray etc. At the end, you can ask as many questions as you want. Worth a visit as it gives you information about Islam. If you’d like to see a big mosque, you might want to consider the one in Abu Dhabi.
  • As many mosques in Dubai, they are all quite new and therefore miss authenticity. Strongly recommended to be on time for the guided tour at 10 AM sharp.
  • Jumeirah Grand Mosque is Touristic Highlight in Dubai.this mosque was biggest mosque,built in 1976.the mosque is built in traditional Fatimid Style. This mosque printed on 500 Dirhams currency note. Entrance free Saturday to Thursday 9-5 opens for visitors Friday closed for visitors,Mosque capacity up to 1,200 worshippers
  • MASHALLAAH very nice place to visit, Alhamdulillah i came with my childhood brothers and sisters. Awesome place to end fasting good food options
  • A fascinating and huge mosque with beautiful design and facilities. I have not seen a bigger mosque anywhere else in the world, and the building looks beautiful. The only thing I didn't like about this is, women are compelled to wear burquas here.
