It's smaller than the Sheikh Zayed mosque in Abu Dhabi, but very nice! The carpet is amazing, If you are a woman, don't forget to be completely covered, otherwise they will borrow you something to put over your clothes.

A must see in Oman. Suits people of all ages, cultures and interests. The mosque is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. Staff guiding the visitors are very moderate and tolerant. The place can be best enjoyed during early hours in the morning.

Beautiful architecture using beautiful marble and granite. It;s all so impressive, and hard to fathom the opulence.

The best masjid in Oman and probably the GCC. Nice parking area, gardens, and sitting areas. Architecturally beautiful and very well constructed. A must visit when in Muscat!

Stunning mosque - went there early in the morning thereby missing any queues. The architecture was amazing - a wonderful showcase for Islam. In fact, Muscat is scattered with the most beautiful mosques.

We visited the Grand Mosque in Muscat in March 2015, The Mosque is beautiful, peaceful and well laid out. The ladies in the gift shop couldn't be more helpful, and we felt welcomed. There is no fee to pay, but cover yourself up completely. No knees, shoulders, or tattoos should be shown, and ladies must cover their heads. Clothing is... More

Beautiful mosque. Cover your legs and arms (men and women), and women should bring a scarf to cover the head. You'll take your shoes off for just the inside part. Around the edges of the courtyard there are breezeways with beautiful tile niches - each section with a different inspiration. These are worth viewing as well.
