the big lampe in the Sultan Quabos mosque

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In the centre of the prayer hall just four pillars support a massive 50 metre high, wood-panelled central dome. Hanging from the dome is a magnificent crystal chandelier made of Swarovski crystal. Fourteen metres high by eight metres in diameter, the chandelier weighs eight tonnes and has 1,122 lamps and 600,000 crystals. The metal sections of the chandelier are plated in 24 carat gold.
