What to expect 

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque has a beautiful milky white edifice and is an iconic landmark in Abu Dhabi’s cityscape. The interiors as well as exteriors of this amazingly beautiful mosque are mesmerisingly beautiful. A bilingual guide possessing a licence fills you in with detailed information about the mosque. Inspired by Ottoman architecture, a large courtyard has been made that can accommodate as many as 30,000 people. There are close to 76 columns inside the mosque’s hall that are a fine specimen of a lovely blend of Islamic and North African architecture. There are 99 names of Allah engraved on the Qibla Wall that faces Mecca. Explore this place with Travel Saga's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Tour from Dubai.

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 Sheikh Zayed Grand 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 fit with amethyst and jasper on the surface of the pool waters that 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.

The Facilities at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
