Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque


Kraig Grady contributes these images from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi…. with comments about the magnificent resonant sound in the Mosque, and the largest chandelier in the world at 9 tons. Other superlative architectural details include 4 minarets and 82 domes, the world’s largest hand-knotted carpet, reflecting pools of deep blue tile, artistic illumination of the architecture that follows the Lunar cycle, and the use of pure white and coloured marbles…
