There are dedicated compounds for Christian worship of various denominations (Catholic, Protestant, and evangelical) in both the center of Muscat (in the Ruwi district) and at the end of town near the American school. There is no public organized Jewish worship. There are (increasingly enforced) limitations on private worship in residential compounds, particularly if neighbors complain of noise or parking congestion. There is a Hindu temple, and of course mosques (Ibadhi, Sunni, and Shia) are everywhere. - Feb 18, 2008
