The mosque is beautiful and the garden is even more beautiful. They are very strict with covering up(even your ankles needs to cover), you can however rent abayas at the counter. I think it was about 1.5OR to rent.

No doubt this mosque is built for tourism rather praying. Arabs are making their living now off mosque visitors. Pathetic.

So beautiful place, take in consideration the way you dress, you must be modest and cover, you will have to take your shoes off so maybe wear something easy to take out, its an amazing place, very beautiful, definitely a must os Muscat.
