Stop At: Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates

Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel/ accommodation and take you to the imposing Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This is one of the most prominent symbols of contemporary Islamic architecture in the world. It took 11 years to complete this immense mosque, which covers over 30 acres of Land. 

The incredible view of the Grand Mosque will be a feast for your eyes as it combines the cultural diversity of Islamic art 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. The mosque offers plenty of attractions, 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), the world's largest marble mosaic floral design, the world's third-largest chandelier (that adorns the main prayer hall), and glass panels studded with Swarovski crystals.

The Mosque interiors are richly decorated with verses of the Holy Quran in three varieties of Arabic 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 and a few memorable photo sessions, you will be dropped back at your hotel/ accommodation.

We had such a great day!! Our guide Latif was amazing - so friendly and knowledgable. It makes such a difference when your guide appears genuinely interested in the content he is speaking about. So happy to highly recommend this tour to people travelling to Dubai and hopefully you are lucky to have Latif to show you around the mosque.
