  • The Mosque is beautiful. We were a group of females visiting while our husbands were at work. Before we had even got close we were told that are clothes were too revealing. We were not wearing skirts....  more »
  • The mosque and its surroundings are a set that you have to see, yes or Yes. (Gardens, parking) outside, and the inside (gardens and mosque), are both perfect care and neat. A work of stunning architecture, meticulous and luxurious. Being a place that is sacred for the Muslim religion, you should go with suitable clothing, neither arms nor legs uncovered and women with covered hair. Attention to your schedule open from 8 / 11 am.

  • Mosques are not uncommon in Muslim countries. But here you can find an example of exceptional size and design: 6000 men and 2500 women can here gather. One has the feeling that nothing has been saved sihe (E.g. the giant carpet; worked on 300 women 400 days (?) or the Swarowsky chandelier incredibly gorgeous)-impressive entertainment with a very educated Muslim woman would be Islam always could you join thinking about!

  • One of the most magnificent mosques in the world, sure to impress anyone with its astonishing traditional architecture and flair. Shining marble floors, intricate titles, a massive and well detailed hand woven Iranian carpet and possibly the world's largest crystal chandeliers are just some of its many highlights. Visitors should dress modestly and beware of its visiting hours. Not to be missed during a visit to Muscat!
  • I Lived in muscat for 10 years. I know all the routes frm my house. This mass is really a Grand Mosque and I have prayed in this mosque. it is a lovely mosque and has a big Garden for children to play. the inner hall is really amazing with its big chandelier. it has a fountain in middle of the garden this is the biggest mosque I've ever prayed.
  • Super...excellent... Surrounding all varieties of wonderful flowers are there... Especially jasmine 3 variety available... Which will give u peaceful atmosphere... If u do prayer in this atmosphere 100% u will get full blessings of ALMIGHTY ALLAH
  • Just beautiful!!! A Must see. Even the kids had a grand time since there's so much area for them to run in and around. Nice gardens and fountains. Prayer area is really nice. People are really nice.
  • Amazing building grounds and people willing to help and give information. Made to feel very welcome.
