[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The entrance to the mosque is adorned by floral decorations created by incorporation of precious stones and marble.
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque's design and construction 'unites the world', using artisans and materials from many countries including Italy, Germany, Morocco, India, Turkey, Malaysia, Iran, China, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Greece and United Arab Emirates. More than 3,000 workers took part in the construction of the Mosque. Natural materials were chosen for much of its design, including marble stone, gold, semi-precious stones, crystals and ceramics. Its archways are quintessentially Moorish and its minarets classically Arab. The design of the Mosque can be best described as a fusion of Arab, Mughal and Moorish architecture.
