Masjid Besar Sheikh Zayed

Imej Masjid Besar Sheikh Zayed di Abu Dhabi UAE

Masjid Besar Sheikh Zayed menonjol sebagai salah satu masjid terbesar di dunia, dan satu-satunya masjid yang menangkap interaksi unik antara Islam dan budaya dunia. Arkitek masjid itu adalah British, Itali, dan Emirati dan inspirasi reka bentuk dipinjam dari bahagian Turki, Maghribi, Pakistan, dan Mesir antara negara Islam lain, mendedahkan keajaiban seni bina yang berkilauan. Semua orang dari seluruh dunia boleh menyaksikan kubah atas bawang yang menakjubkan, kolam reflektif yang menyelubungi halaman, dan dewan solat ikonik, yang bukan sahaja dilimpahi dengan cahaya matahari yang meriah tetapi juga menempatkan candelier dan permaidani terbesar di dunia, kedua-duanya buatan tangan dengan teliti.

This White Pearl of the Gulf is the epitome of grandeur and magnificence which took over 11 years to build. Situated in the heart of the modal UAE Abu Dhabi, the mosque is the third largest in the world! Along with its gold-plated chandeliers and beautiful flower-patterned walls, the mosque welcomes worshippers and is open to tourists each day with a capacity to accommodate more than 55,000 people.

This astounding palace can be visited anytime as there is free entry. Keep in mind that if you decide to visit this Grand Mosque during the day, the fading sunlight bounces off the white facade to create a mesmerizing glow and if you decide to go after sunset, get ready to witness the majesty of the building as it becomes illuminated by lights.
There are free guided tours, in both Arabic and English, to make your experience more enjoyable and memorable. There is a dress code you must follow as a sign of respect. Women are requested to dress up modestly and asked to wear abayas which are provided at the mosque free of charge. For men, shoulders and knees must be covered and for everyone, the shoes must be removed at the entry.
The visiting hours are every day from 9 am to 10 pm. Fridays are closed for tourists.
