Construction work on the Abrahamic Family House that features a mosque, a church and a synagogue is now 20 per cent complete.

The multi-faith place of worship, located on Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Island, is set to open in 2022.

The names of the three houses of worship have been revealed as Imam Al-Tayeb Mosque, St. Francis Church, and Moses Ben Maimon Synagogue.

As a place for learning, dialogue and worship, the Abrahamic Family House will be a cultural landmark and an inspiring global symbol that epitomizes the shared values of harmonious coexistence and understanding among the three Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The project inspired by the Document on Human Fraternity, is endorsed and closely followed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al Azhar.

Its design, by architect Sir David Adjaye, captures the values shared between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
