At night it is even more so, a real must-see attraction!
Named in honour of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan and opened in 2007, it’s location was carefully chosen to make it visible from all access roads into Abu Dhabi. It features four minarets and eighty-two domes, and was constructed mainly from pure white marble and other materials sourced from around the world.
We had the opportunity to visit the mosque recently at night while taking visiting friends for a sight-seeing tour in the city. The mosque is beautiful any time of day, but it really becomes spectacular at night.
I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I enjoyed shooting them! All images shot handheld with my little Olympus OMD EM-10 camera.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit Abu Dhabi, then this should be high on your agenda of things to see!
