Places of worship in Dubai

Winnie Karnik, December 3, 2015
God is one, the journey to reach him is one, but the roads are different.

The ultimate motive of a devotee is no doubt salvation and the path to reach it is propagated by various religions in their holy books. We humans, worship God in our own ways. He’s in our heart, in our creation, in our imagination, and from our imagination, he dwells in our soul. Places of worship are nothing but a way to recall the God within us. When people all around the world have their own way of calling upon the Almighty, won't you want to witness how they revere? It definitely will be an experience like never before. Apply for your Dubai visa, book your holiday package, and set off on a journey of spirituality. Have a look at where these places exist in Dubai.

Mosques

It is to be noted that both men and women entering any mosque are modestly dressed. Women should wear garb that completely covers them, and cover their head with a scarf. Due respect to culture and religion is just a small way of giving back to Dubai for its heart-warming hospitality.

Dubai’s skyline is crammed with high-rise buildings whose monotony is thankfully interrupted by the graceful minarets of the Jumeirah Mosque. Being the most photographed mosque in entire Dubai, guided tours to get an insight into the Islamic culture are offered to tourists.
