大清真寺  Sheikh Zayed Mosque

大清真寺是阿聯酋最大的清真寺,由國家出資,耗資42億港元(超值,香港高鐵用了844億元都未起好……),用了九年興建,於2007年開幕,可容納4.1萬人。

 

女士入場要穿長衫長褲+頭巾;男士入場要穿長褲,但可穿短袖衫,也不用載頭巾。感覺入場服裝的檢查不算嚴謹,總之有包頭巾就OK。

 

大清真寺以白大理石為主體,進入內殿要脫鞋,踩在大理石上挺冷的,幸好室內有地氊:)

不要錯過大清真寺的廁所,入口處有很漂亮的雕花裝飾:))

阿聯酋是沙漠國家,大清真寺卻毫不吝嗇的建了水池,水靜如鏡映照着迴廊,藍天白石是很美,但總覺一滴一血淚…… 

 

西班牙的阿蘭布拉宮也是回教建築,千年前的細緻雕工到現在仍令人由衷讚嘆;大清真寺是當代建築,簡約俐落,但我更喜歡阿蘭布拉宮的鬼匠神工……

 

 

Sheikh Zayed Mosque is the biggest mosque in UAE. It is a national property and cost HK$ 4.2 billion to build (reasonable price, the Hong Kong Express Rail cost HK$ 84.4 billion and NOT finished yet).

The mosque had built 9 years and opened in 2007. It can host 41,000 people.

 

Ladies have to wear long sleeve and long trousers + scarf to enter the mosque. Gentlemen have to wear long trousers but not scarf. The dress code check point is not that straight.

 

White marble is the main body of the mosque. I have to take off my shoes before entering the inner mosque. It was cold to step on the marble but glad to know carpet was inside the inner mosque:)

 

Don’t miss the toilet in the mosque. The entrance has Beautiful flowery decoration:))

 

UAE is a dessert country but Sheikh Zayed Mosque had a big water pool. It is beautiful to see the quiet pool mirroring the blue sky and white marble. But it cost lots of precious water in dessert area to create this beautiful scene…

 

The Alhambra in Spain is a Muslim building too. I am amazed by that thousand-years-old beautiful craving in Alhambra.

The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is a modern Muslim architecture. It is simple and beautiful too.

But I like the complex craving in Alhambra better…
