People give size to the main prayer hall! Turning my head in all directions, I could'nt believe my eyes! A photo can't rend the gigantic realty! After the ceiling and the dome with its massive chandelier, a major feature of the main prayer hall is the hand-made Persian carpet consisting of 1,700 million knots, weighing 21 tonnes and made in a single piece measuring 70 x 60 metres; From design stage it took 4 complete years to 600 female weavers from province of Khurasan in Iran to make it! Oman Muscat Sultan Qaboos Recent Great Mosque.
