Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

When someone says to you that photo’s do no justice, this is what they mean. I recently visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi and I was lost for words. The architecture is just marvelous, it’s so perfect. I went during sunset and the way the light shines through the pillars and behind the Mosque really make you just stop and be grateful for everything.

There is a sense of serenity when you walk through the whole Mosque. The silence literally reaches your soul and quietly lets it reflect on all things wonderful in life. You remove your shoes before you enter the main prayer hall, which is home to the worlds largest hand knotted carpet and it is spectacular.

Most fascinating is the lights which shine on the Mosque at night, change colour to reflect the phases of the moon! It would be unforgivable to leave Abu Dhabi without visiting this cultural land mark at least twice… In the morning and in the afternoon.

One thing checked off my AUH bucket list – Visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
