Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, easily wins the prize for the cleanest capital city. At least on this blog. Its tarmac is flawless, its water pristine. Even the lamp posts look as though they’ve sprouted up overnight like perky moles in a Disney cartoon.

Yet, enough about all that slick urban planning. Oman also has its own version of street art, with the khanjar, or curved dagger, glittering in alleyways as well as on the country’s flag. As part of this week’s Photo Friday – here’s a collection of street art pictures from Muscat, Oman. Enjoy!

I loved Oman when I was there, such a beautiful country in both landscape and art.

    I’m often pressed for my ‘favourite’ country to visit and I think the closest answer I can come up with is Oman. Lovely to hear you enjoyed it too!

Gorgeous! Oman isn’t really a place I would think of going to, and I had no idea it had such beautiful art. Thanks for sharing!
