Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was a dream in the heart of the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan “May God rest his Soul”…
This architectural work of art is one of the world’s largest mosques, with a capacity for an astonishing 40,000 worshippers.
Reflective pools surround the mosque, amplifying its beauty.
It features 82 domes, over a 1,000 columns, 24 carat gold gilded chandeliers and the world’s largest hand knotted carpet.
The main prayer hall is dominated by one of the world’s largest chandeliers –10 metres in diameter, 15 metres in height and weighing twelve tonnes.
The mosque’s first ceremony was the funeral of its namesake, Sheikh Zayed, who is buried at the site.
The striking white and gold colours shining in the sun are transformed at night by a unique lightning system which reflects the phases of the moon.
The Mosque is an expression of a visionary leader who believed that nothing is impossible and conceived that the most gracious achievements start from the heart.

Hanep! Talo ang Taj sa loob for sure.
What better statement of wealth than pools in the desert? I wonder if they’re covered at night to prevent additional evaporation.
Lovely hooded choir robes you’re wearing. 😉
At what part did you have to take off your shoes? Entrance palang or just the carpeted area?
