Well worth a visit when in muscat, the mosque itself is stunning a feat of great architecture and beautiful marble. Extremely clean, serene despite the large number of tourists. Ladies and gents must be appropriately covered in loose full clothing and ladies in head covering, otherwise you will be told to cover up appropriately by the guards at the doors!... More

Very impressive mosque. Strict visiting hours in morning so check times before going. Do not need a guide as it's easy enough to figure out on your own. Just adhere to the no shoes inside rule and women be fully clothed and cover your head/shoulders.

Since Non-Muslims are not allowed inside, we went for night photo shoot... There's a park around it and you can hang around in the grass. Try to avoid prayer time, as it'll be packed.

We visited the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque as part of a group tour from our cruise ship. On entering the site the Indian sandstone gives an immediate calming effect amid the beautiful gardens. We were asked to wear appropriate clothing (not white) which included long trousers or skirt and also to cover arms and chest. Also be sure to take... More

Wonderful Mosque and I have been and seen a few mosques, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, and I have to say, this one is extremely impressive. Learning about the history behind both the mosques.

Everyone should visit it at least once. Beautiful interior and exterior. Limited timings for visiting the mosque but definitely an addition to tourism

Serene and Calm with beautiful art and architecture. This place is a must see when in Oman. Wear full sleeve shirt/ kurta, full pants and cover your head before entering. Also don't forget to carry sun glasses otherwise the sun rays will not allow you to enjoy the beauty outside which is equally beautiful and picturesque.

Having lived in Abu Dhabi close to the grand mosque there which is magnificent in itself this mosque is more serene and stunning. A very peaceful place where you can sit and have coffee and dates with the locals learning about the Muslim culture. Stunning and definitely a must do while in Muscat
