Seeking The Divine
We arrived in Muscat late in the evening and as we drove to our hotel we passed the two most beautiful mosques. The Grand Mosque is actually open to visitors from 8am-11am. Women must cover, but you are allowed inside to take pictures of the interior. Unfortunately, we never made it during visitor hours, so we had to content ourselves with the exterior.
We were however, able to get inside the Mohammed Al Ameen Mosque. Truth be told, I am not sure if we were allowed inside or not. I kept waiting for someone to stop me, but it was very late at night, no one was around, and I kept exploring. The domes on this mosque are magnificent! I wish I could have gotten better pictures of them. The exterior is white marble and it absolutely glows.
