Sheikh Zayed Mosque – United Arab Emirates

Sheikh Zayed Mosque

Fun fact I’m sure you didn’t know about the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi: The carpet in the main prayer hall is said to be the largest single piece of handmade carpet in the world, measuring around 67,570 square feet and weighing around 35 tonne. With around 1,200 carpet knotters contributing, it took approximately 2 years to create, using wool from New Zealand and Iran. Cool eh?
