It was time for my departure from Dubai. Last year around May. But this time, I decided to come via Abu Dhabi Airport as I never visited before. It was a few months ago Etihad started daily flight to Kolkata.
It was so smooth and easy! Check-in process was done in Dubai itself. Then Etihad took us to Abu Dhabi Airport on Bus.
The terminal design was nice. It was not a big terminal but very well maintained and another example of UAE greatest architectures.
Then I boarded into the Etihad Airbus A320. It was smaller than the Emirates Airbus A330 we usually use to board to Kolkata. But surprisingly, the cabin space was impressive! Seats were more comfortable and leg-space felt a bit more.
One of the most beautiful structure you will see here at the UAE. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is located at Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. It was built upon the final resting place of the great Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the former ruler of Abu Dhabi and the first president of the UAE.
Just after the entrance, there is a huge space where about 40,000 worshipers can pray. I could hardly blink, It was no neat and so clean.
If you think it was beautiful, stop. Not just yet. Step further into the mosque. The interior will make you amazed. It was nothing like I have seen so far.
Its been almost a year, I can still remember the detail of the place. The effect was so strong. It is still so alive in my brain.
If you ever visit the UAE, you must see this place.
