Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the key site for worship in the UAE. The project was launched by the late president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayyan who wanted to establish a structure that would unite the cultural diversity of the Islamic world with the historical and modern values of architecture and art. His final resting place is located on the grounds beside the same mosque. The mosque was constructed from 1996 to 2007.
It covers an area of more than 12 hectares (30 acres) and has become a symbol of the Emirate, as well as being the site of Friday gathering and Eid prayers. During Eid it may be visited by more than 41,000 people.

Born of an agreement between the governments of Abu Dhabi and France, the Louvre Abu Dhabi will display art, manuscripts and objects of historical, cultural and sociological significance. Spanning millennia, the items on display will originate from societies and cultures all over the world, but universal themes and common influences will be highlighted to illustrate similarities arising from shared human experience transcending geography, nationality and history.
The universal approach suits Abu Dhabi well, reflecting the city’s position at the crossroads of East and West, North and South, and its ancient and vital role in the days of the Silk Route, when the region linked Europe and the Indian Ocean, opening up exchanges between Asia and Africa. Louvre Abu Dhabi and the wider Saadiyat Cultural District will be a place where diverse and far-flung parts of the world can meet to exchange ideas and culture.
