Inside the Grand Mosque

 
The interior of the Grand Mosque has to be the second most beautiful thing I've ever seen (my wife is the first). The main prayer hall (shown here) features 96 columns and seven 24-carat gold-plated chandeliers, all designed with thousands of Swarovski crystals. Return tomorrow and I'll show you a close-up of the World’s largest hand-woven carpet.

Inside and outside, this is a very unusual mosque. Both tasteful and breathtaking...
