Half-day at Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi from Dubai
Dubai Go tours guide will pick you up from your selected hotel or location and take you to the imposing Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This is one of the most significant contemporary Islamic architectural works in the world, and houses thousands of worshipers at once. It took 11 years to complete this immense structure that spans 30 acres of land.
The incredible view of the Grand Mosque will be a feast for your eyes as it showcases the cultural diversity of Islam along with modern architecture and designs. The outer surface of the Grand Mosque is covered with Sivec marble from Greece and Macedonia; its central dome is one of the largest domes in the world.
Visit the mosque and observe its rich traditional designs, from floor to ceiling, since as its name indicates it is ‘large’ from any angle. The attractions here are countless … The most notable is the world’s largest hand-woven rug (this rug measures around 60,570 square feet and was hand-woven by about 1,200 – 1,300 carpet weavers), a marble mosaic with the world’s largest floral design, the world’s third-largest chandelier (adorning the main prayer hall), crystal panels inlaid with Swarovski crystals, and much more! The interiors of the mosque are richly decorated with verses from the Holy Quran in three varieties of Arabic calligraphy.
As you move around the building, you will see the reflective ponds that surround the mosque and add to its beauty! In short, you will never tire of exploring its massive structural masterpieces. After completing the visit to the mosque, along with a memorable photoshoot, we will take you back to the selected location/hotel.
