You can not visit Muscat and not go to the Grand Mosque - it is a must, non-Muslim people can only visit before 11am Saturday to Thursday. Ladies need to be covered; head, arms and legs, and no shorts for men.

This is a must see for all visitors to Oman. You will find a stunning place in which to pray plus a superb example of Islamic architecture at its very best. The petunias in the gardens outside smell heavenly.

An absolute beautiful place. Make sure you have clothes covering everything, long pants for men too! Not open all day so check the times. Well worth the visit and take your time to enjoy it.

I brought a long sweater, scarf, and waist wrap with me, but I did notice that the Mosque representatives were handing out covers at the office. The office is where you can also rent the audio guide.
