Sultan Qaboos Mosque is an amazing mosque with great Islamic architectural design having unique exterior and interior works and sophisticated chandelier and single piece Persian hand loom carpet etc. I prayed there many a times and it's been great experience.

Amazing modern architecture - worth the taxi ride out to see it. Love the detail and geometric designs.

Whilst there is no specific religious significance if this Mosque, you can’t help but marvel at the architecture, the shape, size, scale, and symmetry of this beautiful sanctum displaying some of the best of Islamic patterns Oman has to offer.

Make no mistake, this is a mosque, a religious prayer area, and there are facilities for tourists to walk around the vast floor space.

We visited in the evening (for prayers) when the mosque was beautifully lit, and it was an amazingly rich experience. Non-Muslims should take note of the visiting times to make sure their are guides available.

A must to visit whilst in Muscat, you won’t be disappointed.

Enjoy.

The mosque is as always, opulent.
Ladies must cover their hair, their arms and their legs. They are quite strict about this.
When we had finished our tour we were treated to Arabic coffee and dates in a little room where a very erudite and articulate
advised on the Koran and answered any questions we had. She gave me an English copy of the Koran as we left. (I had been asking the questions) The questions I asked were contentious ones about covering your hair (not in the Koran) stoning for sex before marriage or adultery - definitely not in the Koran.
A very interesting trip, even though I lived a large part of my life in Muslim countries and have visited many mosques.
