Overlooking Khalid Lake is the massive Al Noor Mosque, one of around 600 mosques in the greater Sharjah area and undeniably one of the most widely known. Beautifully decorated, Al Noor Mosque dates from 2005 and features a traditional Turkish Ottoman design with elegant white domes and dramatic twin minarets. Notably, the mosque is also open to non-Muslims. Guided tours are available weekly through an official operator who provides cultural and religious information to guests while they admire the interior spaces. Al Noor Mosque is just 15 minutes’ drive from the hotel.
