This was a stop on our tour and is a beautiful Mosque. Do take the time to walk around and see the various sides. We did not enter as it was a photo stop, but definitely worth the stop.

This is a pretty Mosque in the port city. Funded by the Sultan, our guide said this is a much smaller and less grand version of the one (with the same name) in Muscat. Will be interested in seeing the Muscat mosque.
