Everything about it is huge. The dome, the towers, the archways, the windows, even the chandelier and prayer carpet are among the largest in the world. The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is one of the largest of its kind and was built with 300,000 tonnes of Indian sandstone. But even here, the real magic is in the detail. Inside the mosque, the ornate doors, intricately designed carpets, and dazzling chandeliers resemble a scene from Arabian Nights. In particular, the colourful mosaics that adorn the walls all the way to the ceiling are worth a second — or even a third and fourth — look.
