New mosque opens for residents of Dubai’s Jumeirah Village Circle

The house of worship will accommodate up to 300 people

A third mosque will open at Jumeirah Village Circle in Dubai.

The place of worship will open on Thursday.

It will accommodate 300 people and have a dedicated area for female worshippers.

Accessible from Hessa Street, the mosque is in JVC District 11, in the north-eastern section of the area.

Its opening will coincide with that of Circle Mall in the community.

Nakheel, the developer of both buildings, said another four mosques are planned.

While JVC is known for its flats and townhouses, nearby Jumeirah Village Triangle is more popular for its variety of villas.

Nakheel said three mosques would also be built there.
