If your in Muscat you must give this a visit - its stunning experience whatever your religion.. the two buildings have amazing décor and certainly worth a visit.

Beautiful and peaceful Grand Mosque ... mixing all type of Islamic arts in one place. You will just set and look around the beauty of the pieces available in the mosque.

There was nothing to dislike. The grounds are being kept really nicely and some parts look a little bare but it's because they're redeveloping some of the flower beds. The construction site opposite is a bit unsightly. But then that's not the Grand Mosque is it?

The Mosque itself is beautiful from a distance and up close it just gets better. Stunning architecture and a wonderful cultural embrace. A must see if you're in Muscat, scrap that. Wherever you are in Oman, come and see this.

Definitely recommend a visit.

This is one structure I found which had painstakingly incorporated Islamic architecture from the world over, as much as can be. and all in equal measure. Very thoughtful and respectful.

The place is evident of the piousness the country holds for its faith. Surely, a place to go down in the annals of Islamic history from the modern world.

the only problem was the weather - but no one can help that.
make sure you are checking the timings because it closes around 11Am and is not opened on Fridays. It has a very beautiful hall in the men
s pray section (women and children are allowed to visit).
