A warm welcome waits for all visitors, Muslim and Non-Muslim alike. There is of course a dress code - but this is just the application of common sense and courtesy.

Good place to visit. Every person who knows that we are visiting Muscat, asked to visit this place. Beautiful place to watch the culture and religious match. So many Neem trees in a very beautiful order are kept very well maintained.

Open to all, the Grand Mosque is huge. The décor is spectacular, detailed and colorful. The carpet and columns are extraordinary. The grounds and gardens too are wonderful. The mosque and the Royal Opera House are MUSTS for all visitors.

The mosque is very impressive for a relative new build. Set amongst lush green lawns and trees it's a sight to behold. Get their early before the coach parties and cruise ship visitors and get some fantastic people free photographs both outside and inside the mosque. Either way it closes at 11am so make the effort. Ladies need to be... More
