Open to outsiders from 8 to 11 am everyday except Friday and with access through the gardens entrance not the front gates, you will remove your shoes and cover up the important bits, to gain access to the dramatically, artistically impressive interiors of the large parts of the recently constructed mosque.

From the individual marble squares in the courtyard for worshipers, to the magnificent and huge carpet, to the wood and plasterwork this building is truly a reflection of the best that we can be in terms of public architecture.

It's Oman's pride. World's biggest carpet made in Iran covers the floor. Magnificent chandeliers inside give a magical look. Visitors are required to be adequately covered.
