This place is mind boggling. 90,000 square feet of micro mosaics mostly with gold backgrounds. They said no pics and we complied but others were taking pictures. Anyway, I highly recommend going to the top of the tower. Amazing views!

This building is amazing and well worth a visit. The interior is so bright with gold that it is a little overwelming.
