Sheikh Zayed Mosque

Incredibly beautiful, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is both massive and modern. It features contemporary design paired with ancient craftsmanship to deliver an astounding new interpretation of Islamic architecture. The mosque’s design is complemented with copious amounts of mosaic tiles, marble, glass work and even gold.
