Welcome to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi
The majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is located in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Initiated by the country’s first President, HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, it is arguably one of the most important examples of contemporary Islamic architecture in the UAE.
As one of the most visited buildings in the UAE, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center was established to manage the mosque’s day-to-day operations; not only as a place of worship and Friday gathering, but as a center of learning and discovery through its education and visitor programs. The mosque’s ‘doors’ are open for everyone to come and appreciate the splendor of the building, take a guided tour, or simply visit to enjoy the tranquility and artistic splendor.
