Todays adventure- to explore Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It’s absolutely beautiful. At the risk of sounding like a tour guide here are a few random facts – there are over 1000 pillars, it has 82 domes and 4 minarets all built from over 90,000 tonnes of white marble! The chandeliers sparkle with Swarovski crystals and gold. The prayer hall hand-knotted carpet is the world’s largest and took 1,200 artisans a year to craft the 2.268 billion knots!!! It can hold 41,000 worshippers and is the worlds third largest mosque. Personally it didn’t feel like a place of worship it was more like Disney and even your entry and exit was through a shopping mall! Perhaps due to covid social distance restrictions it meant you weren’t allowed to stop and stare and just be. That said it is a definite must see! #mosque #grandmosque #sheikzayedmosque #abudhabi #nightandday #dayandnight #marble #design #architecture #wonderofthemodernworld #gosee #mustvisit #britabroad #tourist #explore
