Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel or location and take you to the imposing Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This is one of the major contemporary Islamic architecture in the world, which accommodates many thousands of worshippers at a time. It took 11 years to complete this immense architecture that covers over 30 acres of Land. The incredible view of Grand Mosque will be a feast for your eyes as it exhibits the cultural diversity of Islam with modern architecture and design. The exterior surfaces of the Grand Mosque are covered in Sivec marble from Greece and Macedonia and its main dome is one of the largest mosque-domes in the world.
Get to the Mosque to watch its rich traditional designs from floor to ceiling, as the name says its ‘grand’ in every angle. Attractions here are in plenty... most notable among them are the world’s largest hand-woven carpet (measuring around 60,570 sq ft. this carpet was hand-woven by about 1,200 - 1,300 carpet knitters), largest marble mosaic floral design in the world, third largest chandelier in the world (that adorns the main prayer hall), glass panels studded with Swarovski crystals, and many more! The Mosque interiors are richly decorated with verses of Holy Quran in three varieties of Arabian calligraphy. As you move around the premises you can see the reflective pools that surround the Mosque, which in turn amplify its beauty! Overall you will never get tired exploring this gigantic structural masterpiece. After completing the Mosque visit, together with few memorable photo sessions, you will be dropped back to the selected location / hotel by us.
