Grand Mosque Tips (6)

Mosque at night

All the guides and most VT tips advice the visit to Jumeirah mosque at night, to see its illumination.

My hotel was across the street and I did it almost each day.

I agree with the tips. At night, it gets new colours, new relieves, and, with the not so hot weather, we may take a little longer appreciating it. (My daytime visit was at 6 AM, also “mild”).

Grand Mosque

Located just across the road from the Dubai Museum is the Grand Mosque. The original Grand Mosque, which dated back to 1900 is long gone, and the current version was only completed in 1998. It was however modelled on the original mosque, and blends well into this old bar of the city.

The Grand Mosque is home to the tallest minaret in Dubai, at 70 metres high. The mosque has 45 small domes, plus 9 large ones with stained glass panels. With a capacity of over 1000 worshippers, this is indeed a Grand Mosque.

Unfortunately we were unable to have a look inside, as non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the mosque.

Grand Mosque

Not as striking as the Jumeirah there is no doubting that the Grand Mosque beats its older rival hands down for sheer scale.

Only re-built in 1998 the Grand Mosque boasts the city's tallest minaret at 70m and can comfortably accommodate hundreds of Muslim worshippers at a time. The main building comprises an amazing nine major domes and many smaller ones. Non-muslims are not allowed to enter but even if you can only view the outside you can't fail to be impressed.

Grand Mosque

Located just behind the Dubai Museum, this mosque boasts the city's tallest minaret at 70 metres. It was actually built in the 1990's in the style of the original Grand Mosque, which dated from 1900 and was knocked down to make way for another mosque in 1960 before the current mosque was built. The mosque can accomodate 1,200 worshippers and is also home to the city's Kuttab (Quran school).

The Grand Mosque

It looks very traditional but it dates back to the 1990s only.
There were lots of men outside the mosque and of course, non muslims are not allowed inside. We went during the night, what made it a bit intimidating too.
In any case, is a nice sight if you happen to be in the area but not worth much walking just to see it from ouside.

The most interesting features are the minaret, which is the tallest in Dubai and the domes.
