One of the best buildings I have ever seen. So beautiful - so much white Italian marble. Make sure you book in for the fantastic free tour guide - such great information given. Highly recommended to all Muscat visitors.

If you are on a business trip with little time left; recommend a visit to the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque that is beautiful, offering a quiet and peaceful time out at the end of a stressful day.

Magnificent building, really worth visiting. Try to get inside, here are opening hours, because it is much more to see once you enter the gardens in the back.

If you want to go inside you need to be there before 10.30. But you can wander around the gardens - laddies will need a headscarf ... but they will supply them for you. Peaceful, tranquil, impressive and beautiful gardens. Really friendly staff at the gates - and very keen to help / invite in/ discuss Islam

This place is open for all tourists between 9 and 11 hours. One of very few mosques in Oman, opened for non muslims (if not the only one)! It is huge and worth visiting. Women have to cover hair, arms and legs, but you can rent a proper dress for 2,5 OMR on the location. Take your socks with you,... More

The Mosque stays in the middle of a luxuriant garden. Smooth, clear stone cover the outside part which shines in the sun. Inside you see plenty of decorations and mosaics. Huge, wonderful chandelier are hanging from the tall ceiling while a wide persian carpet covers the entire floor. Very impressive. Kind people are willing to explain basics of Islam and... More

Stunning building, but we did not see inside because, well its obvious really, Friday is the day of prayer in Islam and clearly the Mosque is not open to visitors during worship. We were on a cruise ship, so we had no option on the day we could visit, but the building and its surroundings are beautiful and very much... More
