All about the trip
Join this tour and learn about the rich culture that the capital of the Emirates has to offer! Abu Dhabi is known as the cultural hub for the UAE with the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque being its center point. The world's largest mosque with a brilliantly white facade has been known to mesmerize its guests since its creation. When you visit this monument you'll learn about the history and the different aspects of Islam. The tour will begin with our guide picking you up from your hotel in Dubai and transporting you to the mosque.
The view of the Grand Mosque showcases the cultural diversity of Islam with modern architecture, encompassing all aspects of the religion. Sivec marble, from North Macedonia, was chosen to encase the Grand Mosque, hence its brilliant white surface. The mosque accommodates thousands of worshippers at a time, which is a sight to behold during Islamic festivals. The entire structure took eleven years to complete and covers over 30 acres of land.
From floor to ceiling there is always something to gaze at, most notably the largest handwoven carpet in the world, measuring around 60,570 sq ft. And above your head, you'll see the third largest chandelier in the world, studded with Swarovski crystals, which adorns the main hall. You'll also witness verses of the Holy Quran in beautiful Arabic calligraphy throughout the mosque. The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is grand in every sense of the word! After a few hours of exploration, you will complete the tour and head back to your hotel in Dubai.Sheikh Zayed Mosque Wikipedia
