3 min read

Dubai has announced that it will build a $14.9 million underwater floating mosque, the first of its kind in the world.

There will be two halves of the structure, with a sitting area and a coffee shop on one side, and a submerged half on the other side, as depicted in the concept images received by Khaleej Times.

The world’s first such structure will feature three floors, with an underwater deck to be used for the prayer area, as well as a dizzying array of details. It is expected that about 50-75 worshippers will have the opportunity to experience a unique experience of offering prayers underwater.

It is also intended that there will be a submerged level that contains restrooms and ablution facilities. As a result, worshippers will be able to offer their prayers under water, which will be an experience like no other.

At a briefing held by the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD) in Dubai, plans regarding the mosque were revealed during a discussion about the department’s religious tourism project.

According to Ahmed Al Mansoori, a representative from the IACAD, construction will start in “shortly”, as he told Khaleej Times.

There has not yet been any information released about the exact location of the mosque. There will be a bridge connecting the island to the mainland that will allow worshippers to walk across the island as they seek comfort after worshipping,” said Al Mansoor.

According to Al Mansoor, visitors to the mosque will be allowed to wear modest clothing, but visitors, regardless of their religious belief, will be asked to dress appropriately when visiting.
