Abu Dhabi Visit the Heritage Village

We arrived here at the Heritage Center and we are gonna learn a little bit about the history of Abu Dhabi. This is a traditional Bedouin tent. And the roof, it is made of goat hair. While some Bedouins lived in the desert, others lived in the mountain. This is a traditional mountain home. They have some pretty small windows too. A marketplace is known as as souk, and this is where people would come to trade all sorts of goods. How cool to be standing here in a traditional village looking out over the modern city skyline. A visit to the Heritage Center really does give you an education as to how Abu Dhabi was then and now.

Abu Dhabi Visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Abu Dhabi is home to one of the largest mosques in the world, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This is believed to be the third largest mosque in the world. 22,000 square meters or five football fields. This is the main prayer room. It can hold upto 7,000 people. This wall here, faces Mecca and has the 99 different names of Allah, or god. This is the main courtyard. I can not even imagine what this would look like with a sea of people all praying. Around the courtyard, there’s 82 domes. How neat we are here when they are doing the call to prayer. So beautiful. I have loved this dignus mosque. All the detail and colors and marble, it is just more incredible than I expected.
