I visited the famous, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque which is located in Abu Dhabi the capital city of the United Arab Emirates. The largest mosque in the country and the key place of worship for daily, Friday and Eid prayers. Any time of day is a good time to visit the mosque. But if you are into your photography then you might want to visit at sunset or just before sunset during golden hour as the photos I have seen from this time make the building look even more beautiful as the sun is shining off of it and for women before visiting the mosque, as this is a Muslim site you do need to cover up and understandably they are very strict with the dress code. They do provide women with a black Abaya free of charge which they have in a few different sizes. On arrival, you are directed to a room where you change before entering the Mosque. #qingmingtravel #urbanexplorer #grandmosque

Abandoning the world's first simple mosque in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, located in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is to commemorate the first temple built in the UAE, but because of It is the name of the president that is too long and too difficult to read, so now everyone is used to calling it the Grand Mosque.
The entire temple area is bigger in the UAE, but it is only ranked eighth in the world. When someone sighs that the UAE people are no longer obsessed with the first place, they dont know that they are wrong again. It is. The
Great Mosque is definitely a very worthwhile attraction in Abu Dhabi. Although it looks very simple outside, it is very luxurious inside!
The entire mosque spent 5.5 billion and was built with about 46 tons of gold. The UAE people's style is "no gold paint, but we have gold to replace it!" Although this building looks very simple, he is wrapped in Greek white marble! ! Yes, it is made of jade! In addition to this, most of the mosques are decorated with paintings, such as on the floor or on the walls, but they are all constructed with gems. Not only does the scene really feel that it is luxurious!
Right, the headlights above the head are Swarovski crystals, all!!
This temple is free! So it is really the most worth visiting spot in Abu Dhabi!
9:00 in the morning to 10:00 in the evening, not open on Friday!
It is advisable to come over later. The weather is good enough to take pictures of the mosque under the setting sun and the lights at night.
There are strict dress code requirements for entry, especially for girls! So you can rent clothes at the door and wear them before you go in.
You can rent a tutor or wait for a free tutorial to lead the tour. If you want to take a photo, remember if you can take a photo.
Sheikh Zayed Mosque is also known as the Abu Dhabi Grand Mosque. Famous for its luxurious decor, it features an illustrious white marble façade and tons of intricate gold patterning. The interior of the mosque is equally fantastic, with chandeliers inlaid with tens of thousands of crystals and an immense wool carpet that was hand-woven by thousands of workers over the course of a year. The mosque is valued at a total of $5.5 billion and is open to visitors of all faiths.
