Sheikh Zayed Grand 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 opened for worship since Eid Al Adha December 2007.
The design of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque has been inspired by both Mughal and Moorish mosque architecture, particularly the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore and the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca being direct influences. The dome layout and floorplan of the mosque was inspired by the Badshahi Mosque and the architecture was inspired by both Mughal and Moorish design. Its archways are quintessentially Moorish and its minarets classically Arab. The design of the Mosque can be best described as a fusion of Arab, Mughal and Moorish architecture.
The Mosque is large enough to accommodate 40,000 worshippers. The main prayer hall can accommodate up to 9,000 worshippers. Two rooms next to the main prayer hall, with a 1,500-capacity each, are for the exclusive use of women.
There are four minarets on the four corners of the mosque which rise about 115 m (377 ft) in height. There are 57 domes covering the outside yard and the main building as well. The domes are decorated with white Bianco marble from Pietrasanta, Italy and the interior decoration is made of white marble from Laas, Italy. The courtyard is paved with floral marble designs and measures about 17,000 m2 (180,000 sq ft).
World records :
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque made some world records: * The carpet laid out on the vast expanse is the "World's Largest Carpet" made by Iran's Carpet Company and designed by Iranian artist Ali Khaliqi. This carpet measures 5,627 m2 (60,570 sq ft), and was made by around 1,200 weavers, 20 technicians, and 30 workers. The weight of this carpet is 47 tons -- 35 tons of wool, and 12 tons of cotton. There are 2,268,000,000 knots within the carpet. * This mosque also holds the largest chandelier. There are seven imported chandeliers from Germany made from gold-plated copper and fitted with millions of Swarovski crystals. The largest chandelier has a 10 m (33 ft) diameter and a 15 m (49 ft) height.
Both of these records were previously held by the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Oman
Driving in the night on SZR in Dubai
The Allegria development comprises modern residential and commercial facilities set within acres of pristine parkland, designed with young families and children in mind. The Norman-designed golf course is situated within close proximity to the center of Cairo, Egypt with incredible views of the ancient pyramids and is scheduled to open in 2009. The course represents Norman’s and Troon Golf’s first project in Egypt, as well as Allegria’s most prized amenity. It provides stunning backdrops for the development’s luxurious villas and townhouses and features state-of-the-art facilities including a clubhouse, golf academy and driving range.
There was a rude awakening for Dubai residents this morning. Their alarm? A Running Showcar tearing up the Sheikh Zayed Road at nearly 185 miles per hour.<br><br />
