When Travelling to Dubai, every traveler is always looking forward to maximizing their time and experience the best. Mostly holidays are about having free time from your busy schedule, relaxing and planning for their next move either in business or at work. We have highlighted a few things you can do to get the most out of your Dubai trip.
1. Jumeirah Mosque
Jumeirah Mosque is considered by many to be the most beautiful of Dubai’s mosques. An exact copy of Cairo’s Al-Azhar Mosque, which is eight times its size, the Jumeirah Mosque is a fine example of Islamic architecture. This stone structure is built in the medieval Fatimid tradition, with two minarets that display the subtle details in the stonework. It is particularly attractive in the evening when lit with floodlights. The Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Cultural Understanding (which also runs a program of tours, lectures, Arabic classes, and cultural meals) organizes guided tours of the mosque designed to try to foster a better understanding of the Muslim faith.
