  • I came to Muscatu in principle, the aim of the watch. I am in full. Mosque is simply sublime, perfect in its shape and choice of colours. Full of finesse!

  • A visit is strongly recommended and worth with the spiritual leaders, the final discussion.

  • Monumental building. Magnificent rich green environment, shrubs and colourful carpets. Uniformed service ordinal checks whether the clothing included tourists, and in particular women strict correspond to the traditional wymogoms. If not, refer to "rental" where for 8 dollars you can rent appropriate "robes". Amazing luxury Interior especially in part intended for men. Gold and crystals Swarovski crystals. Magnificent Persian carpet weighing dozens of tons, gates with one tree ... and these melodious calls to prayers. This is a must see and hear.

  • 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.
