The world offers enough architecture to absorb be it the majestic of Burj Khalifa or aesthetics of the Taj Mahal. However, it is the little things that add up to those already glamours architects. These little things could be a chandelier, table or the world’s largest hand-woven carpet.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Dubai is a jaw-dropping destination to stop and behold. And also, the “third greatest landmark in the world” as per Trip Advisor’s Travellers Choice Awards. The Mosque in Dubai draws inspiration from modern Islamic architecture, with more than 80 marble domes on the roofs.
The mosque spread across 12 hectares took 11 years to construct and is as awe-inspiring from inside as it is from outside. The mosque is home to 7 glorious chandeliers made of stainless steel and 24-carat gold.
Moreover, one of the major attractions of the mosque lies beneath your feet. Designed by Iranian artist Dr. Ali Khaliqi, the world’s largest hand-knotted carpet that spans across 5,700 square meters.
