[Abu Dhabi] Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

This architectural gem was one of the things I was looking forward to seeing the most in the entire trip. When the Emirates build, they really pull out all the stops. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the largest in the UAE, housing the largest carpet and one of the largest chandeliers in the world.

But what really amazed me was how beautifully this gleaming white marble structure contrasts with the blue sky.

So without further ado, enjoy 🙂
