I have seen many photographs of this mosque...This picture is truly unique. No one ever shown the details of the marble...

Beautiful. I want to embroider something like this now.

Y'know, Mr. Abu Dhabi Daily Photographer, it's the details you see and show that make your blog so alive.

I must show this to other Muslims here, so they can see how beautiful a masjid can be.

I love white on white and what detail! Imagine making those tiles so they all line up perfectly. Obviously a fine craftsman, and likely some divine inspiration, too!
