During my trip to Abu Dhabi Art, I took a bit off the art fair beat to take a look at one of Abu Dhabi’s more well known cultural attractions: Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Constructed between 1996 and 2007, the mosque is the largest in United Emirates, and the 8th largest in the world. It can accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers. The place is amazing. Here are some pictures.
