This mosque is amazing, the atmosphere is lovely, the mosque itself is amazing, such rich decoration. Gardens are lovely too and you can wander round yourself. We particularly enjoyed the visit to the information centre at the end, where we were offered coffee, water and dates and were able to ask the lady volunteers any questions we had about religion,...

I've been there couple times and other visits for prayers. Grand Mosque always amazed me. Its absolutely beautiful, peaceful surroundings and you get to learn so much about the culture. My favorite area in Grand Mosque is the library, its unique ambiance and excellent collection.

I have visited this place many times and would recommend it if you like to see the sense of the Islamic decoration and art. Your camera will be full of beautiful pictures once you leave the place.

We visited here by getting the organised minibus from our hotel (Crowne Plaza) which was a great way to do it, dropped at the front door before the cruise buses all appeared and picked up around 90 minutes later. You could spend longer here though, as visiting hours allow, if you'd like to pass the day away for a bit... More

While the mosque isn't older, the artisanship and craftsmanship was unparalleled. While the decor is ornate, it isn't overwhelming and is decorated in a way that is tranquil and makes a person want to slow down to absorb everything around them. It's unbelievable that the main chandelier can fit eight people inside it and that the mosque's persian rug is... More

A must visit by every tourist! Beside wide spread natural beauty, Grand Masjid is a true land mark of this nation. An engineering marvel, a gem in the very heart of Muscat.

Visited this Grand Mosque not long after visiting the one in Abu Dhabi. Although both are very impressive (and the one in Abu Dhabi much larger), the one in Muscat feels warmer (due to more extensive use of wood and carvings), more historical, so to say, on displaying so many different styles and influences (arches like in Cordoba, a niche...
