Ramadan Mubarak!

For all my friends who observe the holy month of fasting and sacrifice, I’d like to say Ramadan Mubarak. And what better time than during Ramadan to share my experience from this past spring at one of the most impressive mosques of the world: the Sheikh Zayad Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The largest mosque in the country and one of the largest mosques in the world, it features seven amazing crystal chandeliers, one of which is the largest in any mosque and one of the largest in the world. It also features the world’s largest hand-woven Persian rug. With marble and granite, inlayed semi-precious stone, and beautiful domes and minarets, it was one of the highlights of our trip to the UAE. 

Take a look at these photos and videos and you’ll see why!
