The massive main prayer hall features a gorgeous domed ceiling that’s inscribed with intricate Arabic calligraphy and gold detailing. Meanwhile, a beautiful chandelier and mihrab (the semi-circular niche at the front of the hall that indicates the direction of prayer) give the Sharjah Mosque its grand look!
