Images of worship: Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque
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 chandelier
The beautiful chandelier seen at the centre of the prayer hall is made of Swarovski crystal and gold plated metals, which has 1,122 lamps, and weighs eight tonnes.
