Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi

I know this is beginning to look like a travel blog – but with the 13 days of holiday that I got for National Day and Eid Al Adha – I’ve got nothing else to do but go places! In the absence of having anything technically blogworthy to write while I relax at home during these days, I decided to share a different kind of experience online.

So, without further ado, here’s Sh. Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan mosque, which is Abu Dhabi’s grand mosque and an important tourist attraction:

I’ve heard that these Persian Carpets in the main prayer hall are seamless – i.e. made of just one piece – no joints!

    Awesome Photographs. From what we understand, the carpet was made in 9 pieces then put together. Keep up the great work
