  • Very big mosque with a very unique design of architecture. Bus stop available in the mosque and too many bus routes come to this bus stop, so it's easy to visit the mosque. Yes you can visit the mosque with your family and friends and take a memorable picture and excellent experience. Taxi available and car parking available too. Ritz Carlton hotel is opposite the mosque if you want to stay close to the mosque. Other hotels available too because the mosque location is very good and in the center of the city of Abu Dhabi . All the best to you all and I wish you a very good time here
  • Most beautifully breathtaking place in our wonderful United Arab Emirates. Words cannot describe the overwhelming energy, inspiring spirituality and humbling tranquility of this Mosque. The intricate artwork, perfection of design and elaborate decoration make the Grand Mosque one of the finest in the world. Initiated by the greatest leader or all times, the wonderful Sheikh Zayed, it remains a tribute to his vision, love for his land and people and infinite wisdom and generosity. It is also his final resting place....
