This is a must see for all visitors to Oman. You will find a stunning place in which to pray plus a superb example of Islamic architecture at its very best. The petunias in the gardens outside smell heavenly.

Tried to enter but declined entrance. Probably because it was obvious we didn't belong. But the outside photos and grounds were good enough !
