visiting the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque
July 6, 2013
We set up an alarm to wake up early this morning, because we wanted to see Sultan Qaboos’ Grand Mosque. The name Grand Mosque is not an exaggeration at all - the mosque is about 5500 m2 and the highest point reaches 90 meters. Inside the mosque you’ll find one of the largest single piece carpets in the world - which covers the entire floor of the main prayer hall. You’ll also find one immense 14m tall chandelier, made out of decorated with gold and swarovski crystals. and if that wasn’t enough already - there are 16 smaller chandeliers which are about 4 - 6 meters tall.
