Abu Dhabi - explore the impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
Completed in 2007, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is considered to be one of the ten largest mosques in the world, and is certainly one of the most impressive. In addition to its four minarets, it has a total of 57 domes made from white marble, one of which is the largest mosque dome in the world. The Mosque is also home to the world’s largest Persian carpet, which is over 6,000 square metres in size, and took over 1,200 women, two years to complete. Unusually this mosque is open to non Muslims.
