Don't miss this mosque in Muscat--beautiful inside and out. Women should wear long sleeves, long pants and scarf. Don't miss the information center--had great discussion and was served Arabic coffee and dates.

Visited twice- once during the day and again at night- as was so impressed. Serene architecture with exquisite attention to detail. The Moorish inspired water feature area is tranquil.

Really good place to visit. I spent about 2 hours there. Truly beautiful grounds and building. Free to enter which is great. I would recommend getting the audio tour as it is only 2 OMR.

Visited the Grand Mosque, they have the biggest hand made prayer carpet beautifully embroidered.
There's is a story and culture linked to every corner of the Mosque. One can understand what Islam truly stands for the guides are happy to explain this. I also got my copy of the Koran in English. A good myth buster to visit

Magnificent architecture with lots of photo opportunities. A bit crowded with tour groups when we visited, but well worth seeing. Don't forget to look up and also to enjoy the architectural features outside as well as the opulently decorated interiors.
