Mohammed Al Ameen mosque was completed in 2014 - my favourite mosque in Oman at night, its golden domes and azure blue building making it stand out against the night sky - breathtaking.

Of course everybody is visting the Sultan Qaboos Mosque, but do not forget to visit this mosque too.
Why? Because it is also original in its design. It is nearly everywhere white.
A spectacular view when sun is shining.
And take your time to look around.
My wife and I have seen very few tourists during our visit.

Ladies to be dressed with covered head, arms and legs. You will be watched.

This is incredibly the most beautiful mosque by night. It is open to visitors in the morning between 08:00 and 11:00. Exterior is of white marble with 3 domes which are lit at night. Inside os also beautiful and like the grand mosque the library is a super special part of the building.. Definitely worth a visit. Very friendly staff

When we visited the mosque, there were no other tourists around (a nice change compared to the Grand Mosque) and we really enjoyed the walk around. I dont think that they rent modest clothes so dress yourself properly before going in to make sure you can enter in the prayer halls as well.
The security staff was really friendly and showed us the way and the Egyptian library staff showed us around and explaind us a lot about the books and the mosque.

This fairly new Mosque sits a little above the city with the Hajar Mountains whims making a stunning location and with great city views.

The white complex is accessed. Is steps at the front (there is a lift for those who need it). The outer courtyard looks onto the main doors of the triple domed central prayer hall. Enter via the left door to walk a marked route through the mosque itself. Take time to study the decoration. The more you look the more you see.

Few tourists visit yet it is so well designed and executed and rich in Koranic decoration, chandeliers and carpets. You’ll probably get the place to yourself. Be sure to view the library with over 20000 Islamic texts to study. Even if you can’t read Arabic it’s worth looking. Staff are friendly and emptily and photos are allowed throughout the complex.

You can visit each day from 0800 to 1100 except Friday. You MUST be covered up, so no bare legs and arms and scarves to cover heads for ladies. I don’t think they have coverings to borrow there so plan ahead.

Come back at night. It’s illuminated to incredible effect. Also worth taking photos from around the city at dusk with the lit up mosque in front of the mountains and the mighty Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque lit below.

Car parking in street and car park outside. Taxis will bring you here. Toilets on site. No refreshments onsite.
