General description: Sultan Palace Muscat

Sultan Palace - Qasr Al Mam - can be seen in all its glory while going down the street Saidiyah (extension of Al Bahri). It is not recommended to approach the palace from the side streets around it, as the guards can consider such tourists as a potential threat. If we approach from the front, for sure nobody will pay attention to it.

The Palace was built by order of Sultan Qaboos in the early 1970s. It is quite an original example of architecture. The front wall is formed out of four columns in gold and blue, on which a flat roof is based.

Although this interesting building has multiple elements inspired by a typical Arabic architecture, which can be seen at the first sight, one can get the impression that the architect was mainly inspired by Japanese style of construction.
