The Cave of Miracles is a man-made cave which depicts miracles revolving around the Prophets that occurred in the Holy Quran. Some of the miracles you can expect to see include Prophet Ibrahim’s (A.S) miracle in reviving the bird, Prophet Mosa’s (A.S) miracle of the Sea, Prophet Jesus/Issa’s (A.S) miracle of creating a bird out of clay and more.
Apart from the beautiful greenery in the Glass House, scattered throughout the park are flourishing plants, flowers and trees, and there are orchards as well. You’ll also find a lake, with tall fountains either side of a walkway bridge providing the best view of the park.
Close to Mushrif Park, the area is open from 8am to 10pm. There’s plenty of parking available though it can get busy on the weekends. While entry to the park is free, a ticket priced at Dhs5 is required to enter the Glass House and The Cave of Miracles.
