One of Muscat's most popular attractions are the Al Jalali and Al Mirani forts. Originally built as prisons during the late 1500s, today these historic monuments act as museums. If you enjoy the forts, you will definitely want to make time for the Bait az-Zubair Museum. Bait az-Zubair offers visitors a deeper look into Omani social history.
Those with an interest in architecture or religion will want to make time for the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Breathtakingly gorgeous, this ornate mosque is the third largest in the world. Most of the building is open to non-Muslims to marvel at. Out of respect, the mosque requests that women dress modestly, covering heads, ankles and wrists. If you enjoy Qaboos, you will also be delighted by the Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace. Unique and colorful, the palace is the office to Oman's ruler. While visitors are not allowed inside, you won't want to miss the photo opportunity.
