Explore More About Grand Mosque of Muscat:

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat is Oman's biggest mosque with an area of 416,000 m2 and has a capacity of over 20,000 worshippers; 8,000 people can fit inside and the courtyard can easily hold up to 12,000 people. This mosque is one of the few mosques in Arabia which allows entry for non-Muslim visitors. The mosque is a wonder of modern architecture and is a fusion of Omani, Islamic, and Middle-Eastern architectural styles.

The mosque has four main sections: the men's prayer hall, a Musalla (prayer hall) for ladies-with a capacity of 750 worshippers, a library, and a lecture theatre. There is also an Islam Centre where you will be served free dates, coffee, tea, and other refreshments and you can interact with local Omani women. An ablution room with a fountain in the center is also open to visitors at non-prayer times and is where worshippers perform purification rituals before prayer times.

As it is a religious place, the mosque has certain dress regulations to be kept in mind:

Visitors are required to dress modestly, cover their entire arms and legs, and not wear too tight clothing.

Women and girls aged seven and above must cover their hair.

If you haven't come prepared, the mosque café and gift shop give out Abayas and scarves for rent
