Description

Built on the shore of the Red sea, Jeddah Island Mosque is one of the famed mosques of Saudi Arabia.

Landscape

Jeddah Island Mosque is also known as the floating mosque as it is built on the Jeddah seashore, where half of its structure seems to be suspended above the water. The mosque attracts worshippers not just because of its status as a mosque, but also because of the wonderful view it offers. When the tide is high, the mosque looks like it is hovering above the waves. Located on the Jeddah corniche, the structure of the Island Mosque accentuates the Jeddah landscape. Surrounded by palm trees, the white mosque truly looks like a work of art. The waves of the blue sea water crashing on the mosque and rocky shore makes for a beautiful place to go on a walk while enjoying the sea view. The sight is especially mesmerizing at dawn and after Asar prayers as the rays of the sun bounce off the waves.

Structure of the Mosque and Facilities

The mosque has arched windows, providing a panoramic view of the Red Sea. From the inside, the walls of the mosque are decorated with Islamic art. Visitors wander in the mosque’s courtyard, marvel at its marbled elegance and enjoy the sea breeze while paddling in the shallow water.

The mosque has a separate praying area for women and well-maintained ablution facilities. People visiting the mosque can also stop by the few cafes and restaurants that are located nearby. The mosque is small in size, and can get crowded on the weekends, which is why the best time to visit is during weekdays.

A relatively small mosque with nice view of the Red sea behind. The toilet facilities were paid, which was quiet embarrassing for us. The ablution facility was also limited. Altogether, it is memorable for its nice surroundings.

This is a arab sea mosque. The Island Mosque was designed by Egyptian architect Abdel Wahed El-Wakil and was conceived as a sculptural element accentuating the Jeddah landscape - the architectural equivalent of the city’s sculptures. At the same time it provides a place of worship in a part of the city that had not yet been served by a mosque. A small island was created on the edge of the coral reef just off the Corniche; the narrow path leading across the water thus becomes a symbolic journey of pilgrimage. Really this scene is very Charming ?

Very well located but quite abandoned. We went there to pray. It was closed. I coluld pray outside but my family couldn't. The toilet was closed. The women's compartment too. The toilets around were with payment but even we wanted to pay we couldn't. Jeddah was more expensive than Mekka and Medinah for sure. The taxi too.
