UAE/Fujairah: Sheikh Zayed Mosque

Sheikh Zayed Mosque in The emirate of Fujairah is the second largest in UAE after the mosque with an absolutely identical name in the emirate of Abu Dhabi (both named after the founding father of the UAE and the ruler who United the seven different Emirates by offering other sheikhs generous concessions to form a federal system).
