Jumeirah Mosque invites visitors of all faiths to learn more about Islam and the Emirati way of life. Guided tours organized by the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU) let you delve deeper into local culture—holidays, rituals, cuisines, and customs to name a few. Feel free to ask questions and take photographs; trust us, you’ll want to capture the most beautiful mosque in all of Dubai! They uphold a strict dress code (women must wear scarves over their shoulders), so dress appropriately.
The Great Mosque of Xi’an (also known as Huajue Mosque) is a dazzling mix of Islamic and far-eastern Architecture. The prayer hall is off-limits to non-Muslim visitors, but the five courtyards invite admiration from locals and tourists. Take your time to wander through the picture-perfect pavilions and manicured gardens. At first glance, the place of worship looks like a traditional Chinese temple. However, devout Muslims will know that the mosque dutifully faces Mecca. A closer look also reveals little touches like Arabic calligraphy carved into wood and stone!
