Stop At: Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Street، - 5th St - الروضة - أبو ظبي - 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.

Thank you to our guide Oussama. We had the nicest half day trip from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. He was so knowledgeable, Kind and calm. The Grand Mosque was breathtaking! And Oussama walked at a good pace explained everything thoroughly and was very patient at the amount of photo taking. The women were given Abaya to wear and he genuinely took the time to answer all questions and spend time with each participant. I highly recommend this tour especially because you are picked up from your hotel and delivered back again. It was an unstressful,unforgettable day.

What a wonderful tour. Our guide, Ziad, was amazing. The bus ride went by quickly with all of the information he had to share and the mosque is the most beautiful building I have ever seen. If you have 5 hours to spare this is not to be missed!

Got to see the Mosque and the guide helped us take some good photos. A bit rushed, but I guess that is to be expected.
