___ Satellite View and Map of the City of Muscat (Masqat - مسقط), Oman

Searchable Map and Satellite View of Muscat using Google Earth Data

Satellite view is showing Muscat, a port, largest city and the national capital of the Sultanate of Oman.
The city is located in the north of mainland Oman on the Arabian peninsula at the coast of the Gulf of Oman.

Muscat is the seat of the Omani government, it has a population of about 740,000 inhabitants (2010 census) in its metropolitan area.
Official language is Arabic.

Muscat is in Lonely Planet’s list of Best in Travel: Top 10 cities for 2012. The city is described as: "Oman is firing on all fronts to attract international visitors, expanding everything from its museums to its resorts. Muscat is the focus for the revamp, with cultural events, luxury accommodation and aquatic activities taking centre stage. This year it’s all about Qurum’s trendy designer outlets, Old Town souks and wacky water sports enlivening its coastline alongside traditional dhows (kind of sailing boat). Muscat is still genuinely interested to see visitors, so much so that first-timers might have the odd feeling of returning to the house of an old friend. ‘Tomorrow will be a new dawn on Muscat,’ the Sultan pledged upon attaining power in 1970. Today in Muscat, the sun has well and truly risen."

Just zoom in (+) to see Al Alam Palace, the ceremonial palace of Sultan Qaboos, the ruler of Oman.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time...
