It is the most beautiful piece of art in the Muscat. Tourist are allowed to visit before 11 am. This mosque is located on Sultan Qaboos street and it is 15 minutes drive away from the Airport. It reflects the rich culture. I felt so peaceful and serene at this place. Mosque is surrounded with beautiful garden.

This was an amazing place to visit, it allowed me to experience the culture (as a women you need to be dressed appropriately, shoulder and knees covered and a head scarf over your hair) The place is immaculate the building and the gardens.

By far the most beautiful mosque with humongous chandeliers. Non Muslims can visit before 11am. Kids are not allowed. And one has to be dressed in full sleeves and full pants. Women must carry scarfs to cover their heads. The abayas are also available on rent. The sheer beauty and massive gardens can be baffling at various levels.

This is an absolutely must see when visiting Muscat. The carpet was until recently, the biggest in the world. The chandeliers are awesome. Open to everyone most days of the week.

I have been to only a few mosques but I was very impressed by the beauty of this amazing mosque. When I went to a mosque in Abu Dhabi, I much liked this one. Both my husband and I felt a sense of peace and calmness as well as being stunned by the spectacular building. It was very easy to... More

Don't ever leave Muscat before come inside the Grand Masjid. It's open all day for Muslims, and in specific hours for non (check with your guide before comming). Non-Muslims will be asked to cover their body. The masjid is majestic and beautiful at the same time. Every corner is worth to take picture with.
