Syeikh Zayed Mosque Splendor Largest in Abu Dhabi

It is an architectural work of art which is one of the largest mosques in the world (third largest in the world), with a capacity to accommodate 40,000 worshipers, it's amazing with that capacity. This mosque was first unveiled to Sheikh Zayed's funeral (which is a national leader in Abu Dhabi at the time, now replaced his position by his son), Sheikh Zayed was buried in this place. Sheikh Zayed mosque has 80 domes, 1000 columns, and with hand-woven carpets. Unlike other mosques in Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is open to non-Muslims. Can do a free one-hour tour is guided, hours open from 10:00 am Saturday until Thursday.






Mosques have a layer of 24 carat pure gold at each ends of the dome we can see yellow gold. The mosque is a magnificent mosque at Uni Arab Emirates.



And there's one thing to note in a visit to the Sheikh Zayed mosque, where a woman can not also take pictures here, only men who can take pictures of this location.


Abu Dhabi has spent billions of dollars to attract big names such as the Guggenheim and the Louvre, but Abu Dhabi's finest cultural gems is actually located just on the outskirts of the city: Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The mosque is named after the founder of the UAE, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who is buried next to the mosque. Similarly, as reported by the BBC, Tuesday (01/11/2011).


Difficult to estimate the actual size of this mosque, but no doubt equivalent to the size of five football fields. From a distance, it looks so simple mosque, like the ordinary white building that emerged from the desert.
The mosque is composed of milky white marble with gold on the dome and a large marble page. At night, the scene looks more majestic mosques than noon, 82 as dozens of brightly lit dome light bulb in a dark sky.
If you visit outside of worship, you can enter the mosque for free. Female visitors are required to wear the traditional abaya (a loose black robe that covers the body and hair). The mosque is an expert guide who will take you around and show the prayer room. This guide will also explain about Islam and the United Arab Emirates.
