Visit the most photographed mosque of Dubai

Jumeirah Mosque is the most photographed mosque in all of Dubai and that’s for a reason! The mosque which has been in 1976 is really beautiful and very popular with tourists. It is a substantial architectural marvel, and worth traveling to even if you have no interest in the faith behind it whatsoever. The building itself is a piece of art and has a story. Make sure you bring your camera when you visit the Jumeirah mosque!

Style of the Jumeirah mosque

The style of the Jumeirah mosque is traditional Fatimid style most famously used by the Fatimid Caliphate. This group basically took over North Africa around the turn of the 8th century. They had conquered Egypt by the middle of the century, and this is when Cairo became established as an Islamic arena. So if you’ve been to Cairo you might have seen the same kind of style in local mosques.

Jumeirah mosque tours

The Jumeirah mosque is the place to go if you’re looking to understand the cultural experience which defines Islam and Dubai. It is the only mosque which opens its doors fully to the public under a new “Open doors. Open minds” initiative aimed at demonstrating the non-extremist elements of Islam. In fact, this particular mosque is specifically dedicated to guests that are not Islamic in their faith. The idea is communication of the Emirati culture, as well as its religion, in a way that isn’t just open but also relaxed and casual. Six days out of the week (Saturday through Thursday) you can have a guided seventy-five minute tour for a token fee. Ensure that you dress modestly during the tours. While it is possible to borrow the proper mode of attire from the mosque itself, immodest dress could disqualify you from joining the tour.

Combine your visit with Jumeirah Beach

The Jumeirah mosque resides one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Jumeirah Beach. Jumeirah Beach has excellent hotels, dining, and sightseeing, and is a cultural high-point of the region. You’ll notice one exceptionally astonishing piece of architecture in the region, the Burj Al Arab. It rests on its own artificial island and is actually the third tallest structure in the world. The Mosque of Jumeirah is ideally situated in one of the most beautiful locales of the United Arab Emirates, and is a place that should not be missed on any tour!
