#worldrecords..... #Sultanqaboosgrandmosque has entered into the world records with it's extraordinary interior design. The prayer carpet which covers the floor of the prayer Hall is a staggering 70*60 meters carpet , hand woven with 1.7 billion knots made in Iran by 600 women still holds the record for the largest carpet in the world.
The chandelier above the prayer Hall held the world record for the largest chandelier till Abudhabi made a bigger one and stole the title. It is 14 meters tall with 6lakhs crystals.
When it opened in 1913, the St. Petersburg mosque was the largest in Europe outside Turkey, which is a Muslim country. The mosaics both inside and outside are fantastically detailed, like a colorful kaleidoscope; this is a tiny section of the dome over the massive entrance doors. The mosque was just one of the surprising things we saw in Russia! See more at wemarriedadventure.com.
