Ramadan Jumeirah Mosque Exterior
Jumeirah Mosque is one of the most iconic landmarks in Dubai. Adopting an ‘Open Doors, Open Minds’ policy, the mosque welcomes visitors of all faiths to admire the surroundings and learn about Islam and the local culture. The Jumeirah Mosque, which is large enough to hold over 1,200 worshippers, was built entirely from white stone in the medieval Fatimid tradition, with towering twin minarets framing a large central dome. When it's lit up at dusk, the intricate artistry and beauty are highlighted.
