Though the architecture is a bit over the top if you enjoy more traditional architecture, walking around the Mosque is an interesting thing to do.

Amazing experience, huge beautiful mosque, you'd love to move around see the architecture, the garden and how it's built on the inside. For ladies, you should be covered, so you either bring a long dress and a head scarf or you can rent it there at the entrance. Also, tourists can't visit during prayer times on Friday.

This is the biggest and most beautiful mosque in the country. You would be astonished with the internal design of the mosque, especially the ceiling and "Mihrab".

Amazing. I keep visiting this mosque every time I am in Muscat. It is almost perfect. All Archeticture details are looked at. I like the corridor exhibition of Islamic art through the years. The garden is also amazing. I enjoy this place especially during winter.

A beautiful piece of architecture, very clean light and airy despite the heat. The grand prayer hall and carpet is a must see. Helpful guides and a visitor centre. More signs explaining what things are would help visitors
