"I was pleased to join President Joko Widodo in Solo, Indonesia to inaugurate the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque," wrote Sheikh Mohamed on his official Twitter handle. 

The mosque is named after the UAE's Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

"It represents his values of peace and goodwill, reflecting the longstanding ties that exist between our two countries," Sheikh Mohamed highlighted.

The mosque is a smaller replica of Abu Dhabi's Grand mosque.
