Oman is one of the most geographically magnificent nations in the Arab world, with a bounty of astonishing attractions for you to experience. The architecture of the mosques reveals the religiousness of the country.

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

This is, of course, the most known mosque in Oman. As you enter the mosque, you cannot afford to miss the magnificent corridors. And then you will see the marble arches illustrated with Koran verse. You can base yourself in a beach resort in Salalah which built close to this mosque, the likes of Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara.

Al Zulfa

Probably because it is located in close proximity to the Royal Guard base, this mosque is widely known as Royal Guards Mosque. The mosque is blessed with 20 domes and various corridors. The very facets of Islamic architecture are visible in this mosque.

Sultan Taimur bin Faisal Mosque

This mosque is open for non-Muslims unlike Sultan Said bin Taimur Mosque. You need to visit between 8:00 am and 11:00 am from Thursday to Saturday. The mosque would introduce you to Oman’s contemporary royal architecture.

Al Zawawi Mosque

This mosque is relatively older than most contemporary ones. Open to the public since 1985, the mosque was built in honour of Zawawi family members. You can see Koran text inscribed on metal plates on the mosque’s inside walls. If you are a non-Muslim, bad luck! You have no opportunity to take a look inside.
