Emaar to unveil new landmark Mosque in Downtown Dubai
A new 15,000 square foot Mosque by Emaar, will be the latest addition to the attractions of ever-growing property development, Downtown Dubai. The development is already well-known for its wide-array of shopping treats and tourist attractions, including the world's largest mall and world's tallest man-made structure.
Emaar Properties PJSC, leading global real estate developer, is currently working on the Sheikh Zayed Bin Mansour Al Nahyan Mosque, to be built over an area of 40,000 Sq. Ft. in Downtown Dubai, in proximity to 'The Old Town' development.
The Managing Director of Emaar, Ahmad Al Matrooshi, thanked H.H. Shaikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Deputy Prime Minsiter and Minister of Presidential Affairs for offering the opportunity to host the Mosque in Downtown Dubai.
Located behind the Qamardeen Hotel, the Mosque will be easily accessible to all visitors, apart from residents of Downtown Dubai and Business Bay.
Designed to reflect the traditional architectural heritage of Dubai, the Mosque will serve as a true haven of peace and serenity and will grow to be a modern day cultural landmark for Dubai, Al Matrooshi pointed out.
The Mosque will be designed in an elegant traditional architectural style, and will feature prayer halls for men and women, and a seating capacity for 800 people. There will also be a Holy Quran study room, a dedicated prayer hall for women, and designated parking spaces.
