A majestic structure nestled amid skilfully manicured gardens; Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque serves as an impressive landmark to the beautiful city of Abu Dhabi.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the world. This marvel of modern Islamic architecture was built by Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan in the remembrance of his father. A key feature worth noticing is the world's largest loomed carpet in one of the prayer halls, which was completed in two years by a total of 1200 artisans. One can best enjoy the beauty of this structure with 45 to 60 minutes of guided tours (available in English and Arabic) available for Muslims and non-Muslims. Photography of mausoleum is strictly prohibited but all other parts of the mosque can be photographed.
