It may not be quite finished but - but it is stunning!!
It is the Third largest Mosque in the world.
From Italy - chandelier in the world.
From Iran - the largest handmade carpet in the world.
White marble from Greece.
In fact, about 200 different types of marble from around the world.
Hand painted tiles from Turkey.
Hand carved ceilings by Moroccan craftsmen.
Three main domes.
Iíve forgotten how many pillars, but a lot!!
An area of 22,000 sq m.
Marble and mother of pearl marquetry, marble relief decor, mosaics, acres of gold leaf, concealed lighting.
Itís taken 10 years to build and thereís a little way to go yet.
If you go to the Emirates, you must go and visit this it is really worth seeing.
