  • Rest day, we took a car and made the first lap around Muscat. The Sultan's Palace is worth a visit for its elegance and grandeur. All that glitters is not gold, but at least this Sultan loves art and is seen by the fact that at the end of the road of his palace has built the National Museum! Thank you.... You love art and we love the Sultan!

  • With vista only outside of the Palace, is worth a visit for the flowers and garden view. A great care and a huge and wonderful Guest House.

  • 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.
