Travel Theme: SHADOWS

I have already featured The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in the previous photo challenge. But this time I want to draw your attention to a different perspective to see the courtyards and outside look of this holy place.

It was already mid-morning when we visited the mosque and found a flock of visitors and tourists congregated inside the vicinity admiring its grandeur and beauty.

Though many times I have been here, the mosque never fails to captivate my admiration. I take pictures on each of the mosque’s sections. There you can see  those SHADOWS providing a dramatic facade of the mosque’s intricate and vivid architectural design.

On the right side of the mosque is another passageways. This directly facing the Muscat superhighway.

This mosque is truly a wonderful work of art and a proof to man’s ingenuity.
