Sheikh Zayed Mosque by noOnah Sheikh Zayed Mosque by noOnah
The Sheikh Zayed mosque is considered to be the sixth largest mosque in the world =)
it's located in the captial city of the UAE, Abu Dhabi <3


" It is named after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan the founder and the first President of the United Arab Emirates, who is also buried there.

The Sheikh Zayed Mosque also has some world records made.
The carpet to be laid out on the vast expanse is the "World's Largest Carpet" made by Iran's Carpet Company and designed by Iranian artist Ali Khaliqi. This carpet measures 5,627 square meters, and was made by around 1,200 weavers, 20 technicians, and 30 workers. The weight of this carpet is 47 tons - 35 tons of wool, and 12 tons of cotton. There are 2,268,000 knots within the carpet.

The other world record this mosque holds is for the largest chandelier. There are seven chandeliers imported from Germany and are copper and gold-plated. The largest chandelier has a 10 meter diameter and a 15 meter height.

The Mosque is large enough to accommodate more than 30,000 worshipers.

There are four minarets on the four corners of the mosque which rise about 107 meters in height. There are 57 domes covering the outside yard and the main building as well. The domes are decorated with white marble and the interior decoration is made of the marble.

The courtyard is paved with the best floral marble designs and measures about 17,000 square meters. "
