Open to believers since 1987 this huge mosque in the center of Sharjah dominates the surroundings, even at night when the building with its impressive dome and the two 70m tall minarets are illuminated. The mosque is named after Faisal of Saudi Arabia (Saudi monarch assassinated in 1975 known in the West especially because of the oil embargo in 1973 a measure taken to support the Palestinian people).

The King Faisal Mosque is one of Sharjah's most iconic landmarks and with good reason. The mosque is huge with very impressive architecture, next only to Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The mosque is visible from afar and is surrounded by large green parks, the Central Souk and the city's main bus station.

The mosque is not open to non-Muslims, so I cannot comment on its interior. From outside, though, it really looks imposing, with its tall pillars, beautiful minarets and nice patterns drawn on the walls and even the floor. It's a place well worth seeing for any visitor to Sharjah. The mosque has plenty of parking space and at any time, a number of worshippers come here.

The ladies prayer hall can accommodate a good number and is very helpful during the Eid season where women go to mosque on a daily basis. It has a sense of old world charm interspersed with rich architecture from yesteryear. A much visit site in Sharjah.
