Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is one the finest mosque in Oman. It was worth to wake up early morning. Entrance time 0830 to 1100 hrs except Friday. Free entry.
This quietly imposing glorious piece of modern Islamic architecture is the third largest mosque on earth. The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque was built in 2001 and its interiors are adorned with the largest hand-woven Persian carpet on the planet which alone measures 70m by 60m wide, making it the 2nd largest hand loomed Iranian carpet in the world. Located along a stretch of the Sultan Qaboos Highway, the mosque is a must-visit place in Muscat.One of the foremost attractions here is the former Guinness world record holder of Largest Chandelier in the World – the 14 metre, 8 and 1/2 ton behemoth that dangles from the centre of the men’s prayer hall. The mosaic walls are also nothing short of stunning.
