The exterior surfaces of the Grand Mosque are covered in Sivec marble from Greece and Macedonia and its main dome is one of the largest mosque-domes in the world.

Get to the Mosque to watch its rich traditional designs from floor to ceiling, as the name says its ‘grand’ in every angle. Attractions here are in plenty... most notable among them are the world’s largest hand-woven carpet (measuring around 60,570 sq ft. this carpet was hand-woven by about 1,200 - 1,300 carpet knitters), largest marble mosaic floral design in the world, third largest chandelier in the world (that adorns the main prayer hall), glass panels studded with Swarovski crystals, and many more! The Mosque interiors are richly decorated with verses of Holy Quran in three varieties of Arabian calligraphy. As you move around the premises you can see the reflective pools that surround the Mosque, which in turn amplify its beauty!

"There is a calm serene ambiance inside the Mosque"

The Mosque got a nice architecture. The mosque is full of white stones which makes it more beautiful. Very peaceful and holy place. I could see a lot of creativity in the interior of the mosque. It was good to be there, I felt peace in my heart. Even five star is not enough to rate this monument. The surroundings were well maintained.

"My experience was nothing short of magical"

My experience in Grand Mosque was nothing short of magical. As soon as I reached, the beauty and serenity of the mosque overlook my senses. The place was calm, clean and most importantly the blissful ambience is matchless. What I liked the best was big carpet and chandelier. The entire area inside the prayer hall is embellished so beautifully. It so huge, no wonder it is one of the largest mosques in the world. A photographer by profession, I have taken pictures of so many wonders. But the Grand Mosque was totally a new experience. It is perfect from every angle for taking photos. We could spend ample of time there.
