Definitely recommend a visit to this beautiful mosque when in Oman. Only open 8:30am to 11:00am. Recommend getting there at 8:30am to avoid crowds and the heat of the day! Men must wear long pants. Women must wear long pants, long sleeves and cover their...More

If you visit Musqat, a visit to the mosque is of course obligatory. The men's prayer room is fantastic.

Because we came to Muscat on a Friday we did not get a chance to see inside this mosque. Understandably it is closed during times of worship but I would have liked to have seen the chandeliers and other architectural wonders.

A must do in Muscat! The large “men’s ” mosque is truly awe inspiring. There is a women’s mosque, too, but not on such a grand scale. Go in the morning as the mosque grounds close at 11:00 a.m.

Go in the morning prior to 11 One of the best things we saw in Oman The peace and tranquility have to be appreciated although slightly ruined by the Queen Mary cruise ship being in town and mosque flooded with coach tourists.

The mosque is spectacular and well worth a visit, if you have never been to one before. Surrounded by gardens of scented flowers it is something that is well worth a visit. You can also learn about the religion while having a coffee and date...More
