Dubai’s Grand Mosque is situated in the Bur Dubai neighborhood of the old city, close to Dubai Creek, the Dubai Museum and the textile souk. The original mosque at the site was built in 1900, rebuilt in 1960, with further remodeling in 1998 to produce the building you see today. It can accommodate over a thousand worshipers. Non-Muslims are not allowed to enter, except to its minaret.
There two interesting architectural features of the mosque. One of these is the 70-metre (230 ft) minaret, the tallest in Dubai. The other are the 54 domes of the roof (45 small, 9 larger domes).
