  • It is adorned with over 1,000 columns, each of them embellished with precious stones like amethyst, jasper, and lapis lazuli, among others. The columns are made of white marble and are used both on the interiors and exteriors of the mosque. The pearl-decorated 96 marble columns are supporting the main prayer hall.
  • The mosque is also known for its awe-inspiring seven crystal chandeliers. The glittering Swarovski crystals, 24-carat gold, stainless steel, and brass are all taking the beauty of those seven chandeliers to the next level.
  • The mosque is also home to beautiful rectangular pools that are adorned with blue tiles. These pools are strategically placed to capture the reflections of the mosque’s columns, arcades, and other remarkable features. This creates a stunning visual effect, especially at night when the mosque is illuminated. The pools add to the overall tranquility of the mosque, making it a perfect place to relax and reflect.
  • The mosque features a vast open area called the Sahan or courtyard, which spans over 17400 square meters and is supported by four minarets. This courtyard is of great importance during significant Islamic occasions such as Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr. It provides ample space for worshippers to gather and participate in prayers, and its size makes it a unique feature of the mosque.
