What a building. The attention to detail is superb. The patterns in the marble, the carpet, the tiles. I thought it was spectacular. Very busy with tourists but nevertheless peaceful.

The lamp, very blink blink with UAE colour : green and red.
The floor tiles: I touch it softly,try to feel the connecting between the high quality marble and the flower design that made it looks so luxurious.But I can't feel the connecting.Very premium working.Really Grand Grand Mosque

As an admirer of contemporary architecture I believe buildings should reflect the present day and age and not hark back to the past, but this is a rare exception. Just 14 years old it nevertheless appears timeless in its beauty. The clean white minimalism of the exterior is beautifully set off by the delicate hardstone inlays on the columns and the courtyard paving, which really make a difference. The interior, however, is an entirely different matter, uselessly lavish and reflecting the bad taste typical of the nouveau riche. Beautiful at sunset (probably the best time to visit, otherwise all the white in the sunlight can be blinding). Most visitors unexplainably overlook the marvellous gem of the Wahat al Karam memorial opposite the Grand Mosque. Personally I rate it as one of the most fascinating attractions in AD, for its subdued yet mystical beauty.
