Jumeirah Mosque

The Jumeirah Mosque is one of the most attractive and biggest mosques in Dubai. It is also the only one open to non-Muslims.

Situated in fashionable Jumeirah, the sandstone mosque features pair of slender minarets and a roofline crowned with domes decorated with intricate carvings. Although the mosque has the appearance of a historic building it is actually a fairly modern structure, completed in the late 1970s.

Non-Muslims can take an organised tour of the mosque with the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. Tours begin at 10 am daily (except Friday). No reservations are required but participants should meet at the main entrance around 9.45 am. The tour lasts just over an hour and costs a very reasonable 20 AED. Conservative dress is required and women are asked to cover their arms, legs, and head (headscarves can be borrowed if necessary).

The Jumeirah Mosque is situated on Jumeirah Beach Road at the northern end of Jumeirah, opposite the Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa. There is no Metro Station near the mosque but several buses pass by including the number 8 service from the Gold Souq Bus Station (near Gold Souq Metro Station) to the Ibn Battuta Mall.

Reviews and Additional Information

  1. Hello, there;

    This was informative. I’m surprised but not appalled though that some money is charged to take a tour of the mosque. This shows that there tour demand. Well done.

  2. tours will be held every hour starting from 10 am ?

  3. The guide was excellent and spoke intelligently about her religion, explaining many of the misconceptions held by foreigners regarding the faith of Islam.

  4. This is a good way to learn about Islam. The tours are held every day at Friday. It was very informative and interesting. You need to dress appropriately but they will lend you clothes if you aren’t.
