A must see if you are in muscat - you can pay for a guided tour but I found it fine just going around by myself. It took about an hour to explore. I am a western woman and it was fine to do it alone - just wear a head scarf and modest clothing. The mosque is quite new,... More

Beautiful and stunning - no other words can describe this place! Well worth a visit...They have abaya's and head scarfs to hire for around £5. I went with a shawl to cover my arms but this was not sufficient.

This is a must-see if you are in Muscat. The mosque is huge and really beautiful. It's nice to stroll around the gardens and around the praying halls, all in white marble. The inside of the praying hall is spectacular! I recommend you pay a visit to the touris information center, where you are served coffee and dates and get... More

If you're in Muscat an hour spent at Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is a must. Located not too far from the airport this is a modern building built using the very best materials and craftsmanship on a truly grand scale. We had a guide who was there to point out the finer details of the mosque but it's not necessary... More

The Grand mosque is located in Muscat a few minutes drive from the main city. Though how near or far your ride has been; once you have entered the mosque premises; the serenity and the peace just surrounds you giving you the peace of mind you've been looking out for. The interiors are mesmerizing with huge and beautiful chandeliers, ceilings... More

This is an overwhelmingly beautiful mosque. The carpet is gorgeous and the chandeliers are exquisite. It is lovely to be able to wander around and view all the different areas. It isn't as immaculate as the Abu Dhabi mosque but seems more like someplace you would use regularly. This really did seem like a functioning mosque that was also amazing... More

Definitely worth a visit - a beautiful mosque whose scale has to be seen to be believed. It's gorgeous.
