Explore the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is Oman’s largest and grandest mosque, centrally located in the heart of Muscat with extensive manicured gardens, fountains and long, elegant walkways. The Grand Mosque was inaugurated by the late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said himself on 4 May 2001, as a gift to the nation to celebrate his third decade in power.

In 1993, a competition was hosted for architects to design a mosque that combined modern with traditional architecture. The winning drawing then took six years and seven months to build, featuring a mix of Islamic, Middle Eastern and Omani architectural styles and was built using 30,000 tonnes of pink sandstone imported from India, as well as local granite and white marble.
