Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Reopens To Visitors

One of Abu Dhabi’s most popular tourist spots, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, reopened to visitors on Sunday, 4 October.

The cultural attraction will now be welcoming visitors with strict safety measures in place including the use of thermal cameras and observance of social distancing.

Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported that visitor numbers will be capped and visiting times will also be limited.

Visitors can also opt for an online booking system which should help in reducing crowding. Guided tours of the mosque are currently suspended.

There are also various signs that have been put in place to help guide tourists and residents through the correct procedures to follow at the iconic site.

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the largest mosque in the UAE, and one of the most-visited attractions in the country.

It has been closed to the public since 15 March following the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Founder’s Memorial, a tribute to the late His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, also reopened on Sunday.

Online booking is necessary for visiting both attractions and can be carried out on the official websites.
