Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

One of the largest mosques in the world, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque draws in thousands of visitors per year, especially during Eid. With a capacity of over 44,000 people and the rough size of four football fields, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the popular and iconic landmarks in the whole world. It currently holds three Guinness World Records for the largest handwoven persian carpet, the biggest chandelier – and the world’s largest dome, respectively. With its marble courtyard, and grandiose interior – seven of the chandeliers are made up of 24-carat gold-plated Swarovski crystal – the grand mosque is a breathtaking sight for all of its visitors. For those who are looking to visit the grand mosque, take note that there is a dress code, with robes available for loan before you enter the premises.
