Built over a period of 6 years from 1995 to 2001, this beautiful building includes a chandelier of pure Swarovski crystal and 5 minarets, representing the five pillars of Islam. From the Mosque, proceed to the old city of Muscat and the Muttrah souk, a traditional Omani market. The souk offers a wide range of goods, especially typical Omani souvenirs like Frankincense, Omani daggers (Khanjar), beautiful silver handicrafts and scarves. The guide will escort you on the stroll through the souk and help you bargain for the best price with the merchants. Next, continue to the Bait Al Zubair Museum. The museum is a small house that has been converted to display archeological discoveries and traditional Omani artifacts, such as national dress and jewelry. The museum also displays an exhibit of old pictures of Muscat before the renaissance that started with the reign of Sultan Qaboos in 1970. Finally, proceed to the Sultan’s Palace and the twin forts of MIrani and Jalali, which were built by the Portuguese during the 16th century when they ruled the coastal city of Oman. You will then be returned to your hotel to enjoy the evening.
