The facade is magnificent and grounds well maintained, and with the surrounding modern government buildings and museum, makes it an interesting side to Muscat which is very photogenic. Worth a look if you have time. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

If you are in Muscat and close to the Al Alam Place, it is worth a 20 minute stop to have a look at. A dedicated trip to see this is not necessarily recommended though.
