Full description

Take a guided tour to one of the most significant pieces of contemporary Islamic architecture in the world on a day tour from Dubai. Visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and walk its grounds with a guide.

Depart Dubai and journey to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi in an air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort on the drive with your professional guide. On arrival, marvel at the 8th largest mosque in the world.

Taking 11 years to complete and covering over 30 acres of land, approach the Grand Mosque and have a feast for your eyes as it exhibits the cultural diversity of Islam with modern architecture and designs.

See the exterior surface of the mosque, covered with Sivec marble from Greece and Macedonia. Its central dome is one of the largest mosque domes in the world. Go inside the mosque and admire its rich traditional designs, from floor to ceiling.

Be stunned by the world's largest hand-woven carpet, a marble mosaic floral design, the third largest chandelier in the world, and glass panels studded with Swarovski crystals. Notice the interiors of the mosque, decorated with verses of the Holy Quran in 3 varieties of Arabic calligraphy. As you walk around the premises, see the reflective pools that surround the mosque and amplify its beauty. After completing your visit, relax on the drive back and reminisce on your time spent at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
