If you somehow find yourself in Abu Dhabi, you should definitely visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
It is the biggest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and holds several records, eg. it has the largest carpet and several of the biggest chandeliers in the world. During Ramadan – which is the busiest time of the year – it can accommodate more than 40.000 worshippers.
I would suggest you get there before sunset and stay until after the light is gone, so you will have the benefit of seeing the mosque during daylight and during night time – which is, when the light projection system comes on.
You should also definitely attend a walk-in tour, which takes about 45 minutes, is completely free and well worth your time.
(We arrived at around 16:30, took the tour at 17:00 and stayed until about 19:30.)
I took so many pictures of this amazing place… Enjoy some of my favorite ones below.
All pictures were taken with the Fujifilm X-T1 and XF 14 mm.
