Sheikh Zayed Mosque

Beautiful courtyard of the Mosque.
I was mesmerized by the amount of work involved in building this mosque. There is an incredible amount of detail along the walls and floors. In addition, the floors are all marble.I love how the mosque follows the architectural style of the mughal and moorish mosques.  In addition, the bianco marble was imported from Pietrasanta, Italy and the interior decoration made of white marble is from Laas, Italy.
