Grand Mosque model goes on display in Beijing
Abu Dhabi People interested in Arabic and Islamic culture can now take in the beauty of the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque (SZGM) in Beijing. A scale model of the magnificent mosque was offered on May 30 to the Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Centre for Arabic Language and Islamic Studies in Beijing.
"The architectural scale model is constructed on a scale of 1:150 and reflects the Islamic artistic features of the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It took three months to build it and it is made of acrylic,” Yousuf Al Obaidli, director of the SZGM Centre, told Gulf News.
"This is the second time we offer a model of the mosque. The first one was given to the Malaysian Islamic Art Museum in 2011,” he added. (...)
