The majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is an impressive welcome to Abu Dhabi, and guests of Shangri-La are lucky enough to see glimpses of it from the hotel.
This masterpiece of modern Islamic architecture and design features 1,096 amethyst-and-jasper-embedded columns, 82 white marble domes, reflective pools, gold-plated Swarovski chandeliers and a courtyard featuring one of the largest marble mosaic artworks in the world. As one of the few mosques in the region open to non-Muslims, this is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the Emirates.
