As of the middle of last year, there were 1418 mosques in the emirate, up from 1043 in 2008.
The figures come from a report by the Dubai Statistics Centre and the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (IACAD).
Construction was at its highest between 2008 and 2009, with 331 mosques opened.
Since then the rate of growth has slowed with 23 built between 2009 and 2010, 19 between 2010 and 2011 and only two from 2011 to the middle of last year.
