“Achieving second place, two years in a row, as one of most significant architectural monuments in the world, culminates the tremendous efforts and exceptional services the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque offers to visitors from all walks of life,” The National quoted Ahmed Al Za’abi, deputy minister for presidential affairs and chairman of the board of trustees of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, as saying.

TripAdvisor announced the top 25 landmarks in its Travelers’ Choice awards which honored over 700 landmarks from 82 countries last week.

Dubai’s Burj Khalifa also ranked as top 22.

Other landmarks from other countries in the list include the St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City (4th), the Taj Mahal in India (5th), Peru’s Machu Picchu (8th), the Eiffel Tower (13th) and the Sydney Opera House (25th).

In 2016, over 5 million visitors witnessed the beauty of the Grand Mosque. Over a million of it were worshippers, over 2 million are visitors, and over 800,000 are guests for Iftar.
