Does anyone know what these are photos of?

I'm doing a Geography contest at work and can't figure out where these two photos were taken or what buildings they are photos of. I'm not cheating...it's just a "just for fun" quiz. Any help would be appreciated! The other landmarks we got was the Golden Gate Bridge, the Olympics nesting arena in Beijing and then something in Australia.

The second is of the Taj Mahal. I have seen the first one before, but I can't remember what it is called. I think it is in Dubai though.

And did a search on "building in middle east" and it looks like the second is the Sultanahmet Mosque....

Thanks raecarrow. I wasn't sure if Sultanahmet Mosque and Taj Mahal was the same thing?

The first one is in Dubai. I Google imaged the mosque and they all looked like your pic.

The Taj Mahal is in India - the Mosque is in Istanbul, Turkey. I visited it a few years back:
