Fodor's Review

The finest masjid (mosque) in Dubai, Jumeirah Mosque pays homage to the classical architectural style favored by Cairo's Egyptian rulers during Islam's first Golden Age at the end of the first millennium. The sandstone dome and minarets feature detailed carvings, while the interior is covered with ornately painted panels on robin's-egg blue backgrounds. Jumeirah Mosque is the only one in Dubai open to non-Muslims, but to gain entrance you must take a guided tour organized by the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding in Bastakia. Wear conservative clothing that covers the shoulders, midriff, and upper thighs.
