The city of #Wuzhong in China is to be the setting of a massive new mosque which will accommodate 1,000 #worshippers.
It will be dedicated to the founder of the #UAE, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, in remembrance of his #humanitarian work across the globe.
The building will have a prayer hall, ablution areas and separate facilities for #men and #women as well as accommodation for the resident Imam.
Wuzhong, in the Ningzia region, is home to a large Muslim population and the project is aimed at catering to their religious and spiritual needs as well as being a meeting place for residents. Scientific and other educational discussions will also be held on the site.
The project has the full backing of the UAE government.
