Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday visited the 125-year-old Shiva Temple in the Matrah area of Old Muscat.

After offering his prayers, he met with a group of the Indian community outside the temple.

The Shiva Temple is one of the oldest temples in the Gulf region and is located near the Sultan of Oman's palace and was constructed by the merchant community from Gujarat around 125 years ago. It was subsequently renovated in 1999.

The temple has three deities- Shri Adi Motishwar Mahadev Temple, Shri Motishwar Mahadev Temple and Shri Hanumanji Temple.

During the auspicious days and festivals, more than 15,000 devotees visit the temple to offer their prayers.

After visiting the temple, the Prime Minister will visit the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, from where he will emplane back to India on the same day.
