Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque - Abu Dhabi Grand Mosque

One of my favourite sights in Abu Dhabi, even Paul Sr of American Chopper has been here!

Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest mosque in the world.
It is named after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder and the first President of the United Arab Emirates, who is also buried there. The mosque was officially opened in the Islamic month of Ramadan in 2007.
The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority announced that tours of the mosques will be given to both Muslims and non-Muslims beginning in mid-March 2008 in order to promote cultural and religious understanding.

Lets take a closer look...

Hmmm ... I drove all around, had to get a better viewpoint!

Parting shot before I headed back on the highway... for more shots of Abu Dhabi!
