It's a majestic building. When one looks at mosque, one can't to say, "Praise be to God." The mosque is along the high way to Ruwi and near the Airport. It gives locals and visitors an opportunity to stop and pray. Friday prayer times are a joy to watch as worshippers throng to pray.

This is a must-see site for anyone visiting Muscat, Oman. The mosque is absolutely beautiful! Ladies, don't forget a head scarf and everyone must wear long pants. There are ample docents available to ask questions about the mosque or Islam. This site is highly recommended for anyone.

The Sultan Qaboos Grand mosque in located in the area of Azaiba. It is a big mosque with six minarets. The design is a mix of different architectural Islamic styles and the result is impressive. It is open to non Muslim visitors from Sunday to Thursday between 8 and 11 am.

You've just got to go. Don't miss the ornate tile work along the outside hallways, an often missed area of the mosque grounds.

Take a good camera so many wonderful things to photograph. The Islamic Centre/Library was a wonderful end to an interesting tour and the locals very hospitable with a wealth of knowledge.

The whole site is really beautiful. The mosque itself is stunning, but the gardens and surroundings are all delightful too. I'd rate it as one of the most beautiful buildings I've visited.

A grand mosque, newly build and very grand. Beautiful gardens with Jasmine Bushes. The main building for men has the most amazing chandeliers and an all in one piece carpet. It was very impressive.
