It’s a beautiful place to visit if you are in Muscat. big chandeliers and carpets. Quite huge from the inside. There is a dress code and visit timing. So better to check before going. more »

Opens in 2001 its one of the main attractions in Muscat. Accommodate up to 20000 worshippers it is marvelous and one of its kind. The architecture is breathtaking and words can’t explain the attention to detail. Child friendly but women can’t enter the main building. Separate place for women to pray. Gardens are well maintained. Peaceful atmosphere will calm your mind.
Beautiful building surrounded by exquisite gardens. Dress code is strict for this place of worship. Ladies and gentlemen must be covered from ankles to wrist and ladies need to cover their hair. If you are not sure, than ask the staff. They were all approachable, friendly and helpful. Stunning grounds, fountains, flower beds and surrounding buildings with lots of shady walks in the surrounding gardens. The Mosque is breath-taking with exquisite details everywhere you look and even when full of visitors, a great place for quiet reflection.
