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.
