The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center (SZGMC) was established by decree number 18 year 2008 issued by HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister of UAE, Minister of Presidential Affairs, in 2008 and it’s amendment number 7 year 2012.  According to the decree, the SZGMC aims to:

 1. Emphasize on the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s noble deeds and contributions to humanity, in a way that commemorates his legacy and memory.2. Cooperating with research centers as well as religious, educational and cultural institutions3. Enhance cross cultural communication and introduce the Center as a cultural tourism destination.

During my mother’s visit to Abu Dhabi, we toured the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The “Grand Mosque” as it is often referred is the most statuesque building in Abu Dhabi.  It’s surreal appearance is captivating and listed as the #1 place to visit when touring the United Arab Emirates.

Properly explaining the true essence of the mosque is slightly difficult; therefore, I’ll provide a bit of a photo essay of our experience.
