About the Mosque

Envisioned by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the United Arab Emirates’ founding father, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque welcomes visitors from every faith and all walks of life. Moreover, the construction of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was a work of collaboration with Iran. Furthermore, it involved skilled craftsmen from various nations. Additionally, Iranian craftsmen who hand-wove the world’s largest carpet in the prayer hall deserve a special mention.

Certainly, a major attraction inside the Mosque is the massive gold chandelier from the house of Swarovski. Especially, the mosaic work on the surface of the marble in the courtyard is breathtaking as are the pools with crystal clear water. You’ll see reflections of columns that fit with amethyst and jasper on the surface of the pool waters, which will make you realise how much effort was put into the building of the mosque. Rising into the skies to a height of 106 metres are the 4 spectacular minarets.
