The Beauty on the Ground

In response to the Daily Post Weekly Challenge: “Beneath Your Feet”.

I have been away for quite some time as we have to travel out of town for business, but I keep thinking that I will post this once we are back.

The photos were taken at Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi UAE

Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves” by Julia Morgan

According to Wikipedia: the design and constructions of the mosque “unites the world” using artisans and materials from Europe, Middle East and Asia- Pacific nations.

The carpet in the main prayer hall is considered to be the hall largest carpet made by Iran’s Carpet Company and designed by Iranian’s artist, made from wool originating from New Zealand and Iran and this took 2 years to complete. See the rest of the details on Wikipedia.
