Mosque of Sheikh Zayd Mosque of Sheikh Zayd - one of the six largest mosques in the world, is located in Abu Dhabi , the capital of United Arab Emirates . Named in honor of Sheikh Zaid ibn Sultan al-Nahyan - the founder and first president of the United Arab Emirates . Next he is buried. The mosque was officially opened in the month of Ramadan in 2007. Like all of the Emirates, this mosque is also very-very - it is the largest carpet and the world's largest chandelier. This is one of the most beautiful mosques in which I visited. The four corners of the mosque are four minarets that rise approximately 115 meters.
