Just visiting Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates

I'm not a Muslim but I tried visiting Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque when we visited our cousin in Abu Dhabi. I think this Mosque is open to all...

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is quite possibly the must do visit in the UAE. It certainly is for Abu Dhabi, and has a certain aura not matched by any of the other landmarks across the whole of the UAE. The Mosque’s beauty captures the hearts and the spirits of its visitors who are entranced by its splendid architecture.  The thousands of daily visitors are captivated by feelings of serenity.

The architecture is great, the white color all over the place gives you a sense of ease and relaxation. they offer Abayas & Shellas for women to cover up as well as deshdasha for men if wearing shorts. shoes is required to be off when in the prayer areas. tours are available however not during prayers. make sure you see the biggest carpet in the world and the chandelier best timing to go is right before it gets dark or very early in the morning to avoid the hot sun.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest mosque in the world. It is named after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder and the first President of the United Arab Emirates, who is also buried there. The mosque was officially opened in the Islamic  month of Ramadan in 2007.

Want to visit? Just go there, walk in the outside hall and hear the peaceful sounds inside you. You'll not regret it.
