500px Photo ID: 53340054 - This mosque is large enough to accommodate over 40,000 worshipers. It's the largest mosque in the UAE and the 8th largest in the world. Marble, stone, gold, semi-precious stones, crystals and ceramics were chosen for it's contruction and design due to their long lasting properties.
Persian, Mughal and Moorish mosque architecture are strong influences in it's design , It's minarets are classically Arab with gold plated tips and it's archways resemble Moorish architecture.
This fusion of architechture is surely a sight to behold!
