The grand mosque of Abu Dhabi is the biggest mosque inside the UAE. Also known as the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, it is the eight largest in the world. It was originally named after the Sheik Zayed Al Nahyan, who was the first president of the UAE. The mosque officially opened during the Ramadan month during 2007. It also holds the burial site of Zayed Al Nahyan. This structure can be accessed by the public from Saturday to Thursday until midday. Tours are also offered at ten o’clock.
Design for the grand mosque was inspired by Moorish and Mughal styled architecture. It has some direct design associations with the Hassan 2 Mosque and Badshahi Mosque. The floor plan and layout for the dome came from the Badshahi mosque in Lahore, Pakistan. Its curved archways symbolize Moorish architecture with classical Arab minarets. Some describe the layout as a fusion of Moorish, Mughal, and Arab architecture.See more pictures →
