A mosque is a place that best tells about the architecture of an Arab country and the traditions of Islam.
One of these is the symbol of Dubai - the Jumeirah Mosque, located in the Jumeirah district on the bay's coast. This building houses the Center for Intercultural Communication under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed so that anyone can visit the holy place.
