Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi reopens its doors to visitors


We’re so excited to report that from today you can now visit this amazing spiritual place of worship.


Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi has finally reopened its doors to visitors.  From today, Sunday, 4 October 2020, you’ll be able to go and marvel at this architectural gem.

However, tours will not be reinstated just yet, in order to make sure that social distancing measures are met.

One of the capital’s most popular cultural destinations, the Grand Mosque closed its doors in March earlier this year, in response to the pandemic.

The Founder’s Memorial also reopened today for visitors. Located in the West Corniche area close to Emirates Palace, the memorial offers a moving tribute to the late His Highness Sheikh Zayed.

Other places of worship across the UAE are set to open in the coming weeks.
