Such an amazing place, i visited with my wife on her visit to Oman. Beautifully landscaped gardens which gives you lots of photo opportunities as well as the scenic view of the surroundings. One of the must visit places in Muscat Oman. inside architecture and and the cultural paint works are breathtaking and the good thing is you are allowed to take photos inside. If you are a tourist and a non-Muslim, make sure you plan your visit between times mentioned below, Non-Muslims can visit the Grand Mosque from 8am to 11am on Saturday to Thursday. Hope this will give you an rough idea before your visit.
Absolutely fantastic building! Beautiful architecture thought through to the last detail. Unfortunately can be quite crowded during visiting hours in the morning with groups from the cruise ships. So better check the cruise ship schedule and go there when no ship is in port. Then the experience would have been even better. Nonetheless was great to visit. Super clean and well managed.
