Everyone who lives in Muscat has driven past the architectural wonder that is the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, many have visited, and many have prayed there too. This iconic monument of faith is not only a wonderful place of reflection and prayer, it is also home to an architectural museum of sorts, paying homage to the various eras of Islamic design, as well as many notable modern architectural features that serve as inspiration for the eyes and soul.

The Interiors

The interiors of the Grand Mosque are nothing short of a jaw-dropping design, with a variety of high-end materials such as dark grey Bardiglio marbles, Bianco P clad works, and ceramic floral patterns. The design is majorly inspired by Persian and Mamluk classical art.
