  • Must see of your Muscat tour, simply stunning. This is the biggest mosque of all of Oman with its five minarets. I used the audio guide that was particularly useful in uncovering important details about the mosque and Islam traditions. One note: please dress modestly out of respect for this place. This means wearing long sleeves and cover your legs. Women are also asked to wear a veil.
  • Amazing grand mosque in Muscat Oman be sure not to miss this. Visiting hours 8-11am fir tourists and non Muslims. This time you get opportunity to go inside main prayer hall which is decorated beautifully. Other times only Muslims are allowed to enter the prayer halls but you can visit the outside
