Tourist Attraction

Jumeirah Mosque

The Jumeirah Mosque is also open to non-Muslims on a guided tour. It was built in the period from 1975 to 1978 by the ruling Maktoum family in the Jumeirah district. The mosque and the Jumeirah Road are separated by well-kept gardens.
Two 70-metre high minarets and five mighty domes characterise the sacred building. The mosque is particularly impressive at night, when it is attractively illuminated. The alternation of light and shade particularly emphasises the façade's decorative elements of ivory-coloured limestone.
Inside, the Jumeirah Mosque is kept simple, with recognisable Egyptian and Turkish influences. Ornate chandeliers hang from the ceiling in the antechamber. The prayer room is dominated by the mighty dome roof, which is flanked by two slim, towering minarets. Above the side naves are four small domes. The prayer room is covered with blue carpet and can accommodate 1200 worshippers. Sideways from the main entrance there is a separate prayer room for women. On a guided tour you will learn not only about the architecture of the mosque, but also about Islam.
