Place of worship in Oman: Jama’ a Al Sayyid Tareq

Ramadan presents a great opportunity to go pray in beautiful houses of worship that you might not otherwise see. Whether for Taraweeh prayers or Dhuhr, this month, take time to pay a visit to one of Muscat’s architectural monuments of faith.

{ Jama’ a Al Sayyid Tareq Bin Mas’ood }

Jama’a Al Sayyid Tareq is one of the oldest mosques in Al Khoudh, opened in 1992 by HH Tareq bin Mas’ood. The mosque’s nearby landmarks include Al Khoudh Park, Domino’s Pizza, and Sultan’s Wholesale Centre. Renovated in 2003, the exterior still has an old feel but with modern touches; at the entrance there is a large white-coloured tent that is designed in a contemporary manner and the mosque has one of the most unique chandeliers in town, made of little green light boxes hanging underneath a large leaf that hangs from the centre of a pale green dome.

*This mosque has a Ladies’ Prayer Hall
