Welcome to Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Clad in white marble, the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi rises from the desert sands on the outskirts of the United Arab Emirate’s capital city. The majestic sight of the mosque inspires spiritual awe in any heart, no matter what the religious persuasion or lack thereof. One of the few mosques that welcomes non-Muslims, it’s also the world’s third largest mosque.

Clad in white marble, the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi rises from the desert sands on the outskirts of the United Arab Emirate’s capital city. The majestic sight of the mosque inspires spiritual awe in any heart, no matter what the religious persuasion or lack thereof. One of the few mosques that welcomes non-Muslims, it’s also the world’s third largest mosque.
Open to visitors daily throughout the year (except Fridays in Ramadan), the mosque is free to enter. Female visitors are required to wear an abaya to go inside, a black over-garment that can be borrowed at the entrance. Men are required to dress modestly. Lonely Planet calls it “a masterpiece of modern Islamic architecture and design”.
