A definite must see. Our first time inside a mosque and it was absolutely incredible. It was also nice to speak with the staff and to better understand the religion of Islam.

Very beautiful, but new mosque. It is a massive compound and well-worth seeing if you are in Muscat, but as compared to other historic sites in the Middle East, it leaves a little bit lacking. However, the carpet in the men's mosque is truly amazing.

All I can say is that what everyone else had said is perfectly true - a monumental experience. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, and the gardens are beautiful.

A stunning mosque set in beautiful gardens that, like most of Muscat, are really well kept. I think the third largest dome in the World. A relatively new building built in 2001 and about 12 miles from the port. It has the biggest carpet made as a single piece and which weighs 21 tons.

This Mosque is amazingly decorated, and worth the visit, you should however plan to be early in the reduced time frame where it is open for non Muslims / visitors for having the best spots for photography without too many visitors.

Went on guided tour and well worth it. Leaves you speechless.Some friendly ladyies at the end of the tour will give info over coffee / dates and you can ask anything you want to about the religion of Islam. The building is huge and the sight of it inside really takes your breath away. Made me realise that we should... More

Sultan Qaboos grand mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques I've been to, very vast and unique. The women's prayer hall is very big and the details of the decorations will blow your mind You wouldn't want to get out of there Yeah and children are not allowed to enter the prayer room.

Beautiful Mosque and surrounding gardens. Superb chandelier and the carpet! Made in one piece - how did they do that! The visitors centre was so welcoming and a wealth of information too. Do not miss!
