Articles on the topic "Sheikh Zayda Mosque"
For most of us, the United Arab Emirates is associated with a 50-degree heatwave, a giant shopping mall in Dubai, and a wealth of oil sheikhs. But it is only the «tip of the iceberg» because each new country does not immediately show its real «face».
The Jumeira Mosque in Dubai is one of the few mosques in the country open to all visitors, regardless of their religion. The Sheikh Mohammed Cultural Cooperation Center (SMCCU), which operates at the Jumeira Mosque, is the reason for this opportunity. The main purpose of the center is to promote tourists studying the culture and religion of the United Arab Emirates. The Jumeira Mosque has become one of Dubai’s most popular attractions, and its image can be seen on the 500 dirhams bill.
