Standing tall as an exemplary of modern Islamic architecture, the Jumeirah Mosque is a prominent landmark in Dubai. It has been built in the medieval Fatimid tradition with intricate patterns adorning the walls. The snowy-white color of the mosque is soothing for the eyes, just like a place of prostration should be. It is believed that this beautiful structure is the most photographed mosque in all of Dubai.

It is one of the few mosques, where non-Muslims are allowed to enter during specific hours.

There is no fee for taking this tour. Unlike most others, this mosque has no restrictions on photography. The 1 hour and 30 minutes tour combines sight-seeing and fact finding for tourists and ends with a Q & A round.
