  • This mosque a visit is certainly worth (each morning from 8 until 11 o'clock, without Friday). Impress the size, the pageantry and the beautiful gardens. Observe dress codes, otherwise but also covers, or Omani address can be rented.

  • 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.
