Jumeirah mosque was opened in 1979 when Dubai was a much smaller place than it is now. Built in white stone, the architecture is of the medieval Fatimid tradition (909-1171 AD).
Situated on the Beach road, it is a stunning building with a central dome and two minarets and it is one of a handful of mosques in the UAE to welcome non-Muslims to visit and photograph, several days a week. Jumeirah mosque is also featured on the UAE 500 dirham currency note.
The windows at this mosque are positioned beautifully, adding to the graceful shape of the building with delicate Islamic designs in the tracery and surrounds.
In the grounds.a large tree spreads it’s branches over the grass, allowing shade and together with the palm trees marking the boundaries of the garden gives a sense of tranquility, complementing the beautiful building.
