Breathtaking and huge. The largest carpet & chandeliers in the world. Ladies take a scarf with you or be prepared to have a black gown put on. this wa not a bad thing and I really didn't mind. The pavilions around the Mosque are beautiful and the decorations everywhere are gorgeous.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is located few minutes outside Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates and it is a marvelous structure to see.

One must respect a destinations culture when visiting however my wife almost fainted when forced to where the full black muslim attire. The mosque itself was grand indeed and beautiful and a place to behold for visitors.

Beautiful mosque. We took the sunset tour on a Friday afternoon and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended as one of the highlights in Abu Dhabi.
