An emirate that has a rich heritage as well as a modern metropolis, Abu Dhabi features some truly awe-inspiring sites. These iconic landmarks show just how rich in history and advanced the capital of the UAE really is.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
As grand as they come, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the world. While its characteristic white and gold exteriors feature various design styles set amidst tranquil pools, inside is a truly massive chandelier and a hand knotted carpet that is the largest of its kind on the planet.
Seeing this immense circular building glistening in the sun, one is bound to think they have somehow walked into a sci-fi film! Futuristic indeed, this one of a kind structure is a corporate office that will truly mesmerise.
Al Jahili Fort
Taking one from the future to the past, Al Jahili Fort dates back to the 19th century. Those staying a bit away from this area in places like Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Resorts can plan an excursion here, the perfect compliment to Sir Bani Yas Island activities. Set amidst idyllic gardens, this historic structure gives one a chance to explore an ancient and truly beautiful fort.
Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium
With an exterior that has design elements taken from a palm trunk, the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium is another landmark worth visiting. The home of Al Ain FC, this 25,000 capacity stadium is quite eye catching when lit up in various colours at night.
