Al Noor Mosque at Corniche Al Buhaira Street

Al Noor Mosque is built by order of the wife of the ruler of Sharjah, her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed al Qassimi, and completed in 2005. The architectural design has influences of classical Turkish Ottoman architecture. One of the eye catching features is the elegant cascading domes, of which there are 34 in total.

The Al Noor Mosque is the first mosque in Sharjah to be visited by non-muslim visitors within a guided tour that informs about Islam and cultural aspects of the life in the UAE. Photographs and cameras are permitted during the Mosque visit.
