One of the 4 minarets of Sheikh Zayed Mosque – Abu Dhabi – Eighth largest mosque in the world, named after the founder and 1st president of United Arab Emirates SHEIKH ZAYED BIN SULTHAN AL NAHYAN

The Mosque is large enough to accommodate 40,000 worshippers

The carpet laid out on the vast expanse is the “World’s Largest Carpet” made by Iran’s Carpet Company and designed by Iranian artist Ali Khaliqi. This carpet measures 5,627 m2 (60,570 sq ft), and was made by around 1,200 weavers, 20 technicians, and 30 workers. The weight of this carpet is 47 tons – 35 tons of wool, and 12 tons of cotton. There are 2,268,000,000 knots within the carpet.

This mosque also holds the largest chandelier. There are seven imported chandeliers from Germany and are copper and gold-plated. The largest chandelier has a 10 m (33 ft) diameter and a 15 m (49 ft) height

The floral marble designs inside-out the mosque is unique and mind blowing

  1. What a beautiful take! So many components to take in, from the shape of the window and minaret to the white of the structure and clouds. Love the tassels in the window. Thanks for sharing!
