  • Grand! Was awed to see how they maintain the mosque. Very peaceful. I didn't get a chance to pray Jumma there. Very nice architecture. All facilities available there and very well maintained. Date of experience: October 2015
  • Visited this mosque in 2017 during my visit to Oman. Very well built and exclusive mosque. Large capacity for praying. Ablution area and toilets were clean. Large parking space. Spectacular entrance. Inside was a large central chandelier, creating a very ambient environment. The carpet was very soft and very clean. Must go to place while visiting Muscat. Recommend highly to visit during daytime to see the true majesty of this place.
