With over 1000 pillars holding more than 80 domes made out of marbles, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque of Abu Dhabi is a remarkable piece of modern Islamic architecture. Coincidently, we visited the mosque just before sunset. The sight of setting sun behind the mosque was simply breath-taking. Being the third largest mosque in the world and the largest mosque in the entire United Arab Emirates, this mosque is one of the most iconic landmarks of Abu Dhabi. It is even more beautiful form the inside than it looks from the outside. Huge chandeliers made of sparkling Swarovski crystals and shining 24 carat gold shines bright inside the mosque.
