This architectural work of art is one the world’s largest mosques, with a capacity for an astonishing 41,000 worshippers. It features 82 domes, over a 1,000 columns, 24 carat gold gilded chandeliers and the world's largest hand knotted carpet. The mosque's first ceremony was the funeral of its namesake, Sheikh Zayed, who is buried at the site.
The striking white and gold colours shining in the sun are transformed at night by a unique lightning system which reflects the phases of the moon.
Al Ain Oasis
Transporting visitors from the hustle and bustle of downtown Abu Dhabi to a tranquil haven, this is the largest oasis in the city of Al Ain, located near the Al Ain Museum. Guests will experience a world far removed from the gilded charms of Abu Dhabi – the rustle of palm fronds in lush plantations, birdsong, and verdant farmland.
