This is the most beautiful mosque I've seen. It is located at the entrance to the city and this is the first thing that the eye stops at. Entrance to the mosque is free, it is opposite the mosque, taxi drivers know you go down and go down the corridor, first go through the coin museum, then check in, then whoever is improperly dressed is sent to the room where they give out wraps (so you can not take scarfs with you), and then go to the mosque. Lifts and escalators are provided everywhere. I traveled to Abu Dhabi from Dubai, on bus 101E, from the bus station Ibn Battuta (the same name at the metro station, when going right), a ticket of 25 dirhams, payment by transport card (you can only top up it in cash at the bus station), go 1 , 5 hours, buses run every 20 minutes.

Description:

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque stands out as one of the world’s largest mosques, and the only one that captures unique interactions between Islam and world cultures. Sheikh Zayed's vision for the Grand Mosque was to incorporate architectural styles from different Muslim civilizations and celebrate cultural diversity by creating a haven that is truly diverse and inspirational in its foundation. The mosque’s architects were British, Italian and Emirati, and design inspiration was borrowed parts of Turkey, Morocco, Pakistan, and Egypt among other Islamic countries, revealing a glistening architectural marvel with an astonishing capacity of 40,000 worshippers and visitors. 

The open-door policy invites tourists and celebrants from all around the world who can witness the spectacular onion-top domes, the reflective pools that engulf the courtyard and the iconic prayer hall, which not only overflows with blissful sunlight, but also houses the world’s biggest chandelier and carpet, both meticulously handmade. Be sure to spot the calligraphy encircling the hollows of the domes, etched with verses from the Quran and painted with gold leaves in An-Naskh lettering.
