Situated near the Jumeirah 1 area of Dubai, Jumeirah Mosque happens to be the most photographed mosque in the entire city. Almost every individual from the Muslim community wishes to visit the place at least once. Jumeirah Mosque is one of the very few mosques, which welcomes people with pure love even from the diverse communities. Hence, the non-Muslim visitors take the due assistance of the touring groups to admire the serenity of the mosque. The permission to welcome even the non- Muslim tourists were issued with the sole motive of spreading awareness about the Islamic religion.
The heritage was built recently in the year 1976 and since then it has become one of the most celebrated tourist spots of Dubai. Developed and decorated frivolously by Hegazi and Moaez, the museum offers glimpses of pristine Fatimid style, reflecting the traditional antiquity of this place.
Jumeirah Mosque is situated near the Chicago Beach Hotel which has been renamed as the Jumeirah Beach Hotel since 1995. However, irrespective of the growing market place and overcrowding of the historical heritage sites of Dubai, Jumeirah Mosque has denied the turmoil of modernization and has till now successfully preserved the serene tradition.
Owing to the traditional architecture, the Jumeirah Mosque remains distinct from the rest and is designed to accommodate around 1300 people. The "Two Minaret Mosque" allows tourism only four times a week, each of which takes an approximate time of seventy- five minutes. The tour facilitates the visitors with the prime knowledge of the five pillars of Islam and various other fascinating facts about the religion.
The roof of almost every mosque here is designed in the most popular hypostyle form and is supported by various vertical columns, each reflecting the ancient artwork of the place. People from all over the world gather here to take a glimpse of the pristine qiblah wall lying exactly on the other side of the entrance. Exactly at the center of the qiblah wall, mihrab offers the place for the imam to lead the prayers five times a day. People gather in the prayer hall and offer their daily prayers facing towards the pious Ka'aba.
The place around the mosque teems with innumerable people every day owing to the Palm Strip Mall located on the exact another side of the mosque at Jumeirah Mosque 1 road. Hence, tourists visiting the place also get the gorgeous opportunity to interact and intermix with the local residents dwelling there.
