Short on time and want to get a glimpse of the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi that you’ve heard so much about?

Well, once you answer my afternoon siesta wake-up calls, we’ll do a round trip to Abu Dhabi from Dubai to do exactly that.

We’ll visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque*, an absolute marvel in all its dazzling white marble. Believed to be the 8th largest mosque in the world, this place of worship has an open doors policy inviting citizens of the world to see its magnificence up close. Here, we’ll learn about facets of the Islamic faith and the stunning detail in its construction which took 11 years to build and involved contributions from across the world. We’ll learn about the ‘wudu’ washing rituals and witness the prayer halls where Muslims gather to pray ‘salat al-jama‘ah’. We’ll also get to capture the mosque’s magnificence at sunset when the 22 light towers project bluish clouds onto the white marble.

Once we’ve soaked up the extraordinary detail of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, we’ll reflect on our enchanting journey as we return to Dubai.
