The Palace of Sultan Qaboos bin Said in Muscat, Oman

After a busy few days in Oman, on which we will write during the coming week, we grab a taxi because we still need to see the Royal Palace which is very colourful. The sun light was reducing but we had to go there and take some pictures. Maybe this is our last time in Oman, you never know. The side buildings are in white but the main palace is combination of blue, yellow and gold. It is a small but spectacular building. We had never seen such architecture, it is unique.

Na een paar drukke dagen in Oman, waarover we nog zullen schrijven in de komende week, nemen we snel een taxi daar we het Paleis van de Sultan nog willen zien. De zon gaat snel onder, maar toch willen we deze opportuniteit om foto’s te maken niet laten schieten. Dit zou onze laatste keer in Oman kunnen zijn. De zijgebouwen zijn wit maar het hoofdpaleis is zeer kleurrijk in blauwe, gele en gouden kleuren. Het is een klein maar spectaculair gebouw. We hebben nog nooit zo’n architectuur gezien, het is uniek..

  3. Yes, I have never seen such a building, and they would never lack for parking spaces, either!!! That looks like a marble sidewalk in front of it!
