  • The Royal Palace be missing during a visit to Muscat, definitely not. Beautiful complex, the individual buildings, the Avenue, the grounds with beautiful plants. It's so clean, one has the feeling, the floor shines underfoot. Be sure to look at.

  • Just for pics. Not open for public. Its a waste of time.
  • A beautiful and peaceful place for visit. Displays vivid colours during the day and sparkling with light effects in d night. The buildings in the courtyard are majestic.
  • Palace of Sultan Qaboos with a good garden and nice place to click picture
  • Excellent palace of a great Sultan. Would have been great if a trip inside was possible
  • Locally called as Muscat Palace, The oldest palace of Oman. While new constructions are made but designs are matched with the existing buildings. Still the part of old history is secured and well maintained which can see from the still existing watch towers in the mountains. An exciting photo place for the visitors.
