Photograph of the day – Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Image Posted on Updated on


On a trip to Muscat, I could not miss the Grand Mosque. As the sun shone down on the Mosque, the building looked majestic in its finely cut Indian sandstone with 160 feet high central dome. It was certainly a celebration to mark the 30 years the Sultan had reigned. Inside, I could not but stand in wonderment of the huge Islamic architecture chandelier hanging over the men’s prayer hall. Walking around more, I found myself talking to an amiable volunteer who gave me a copy of the Quran, a CD, and other information. He was helpful to explain his religion and answer my questions. If you are in Muscat, this is a must-see.
