Bank or Palace?!

This beautiful building, The Oman International (Headquarters) Bank , located in Khuwair, is quite eye-catching when driving through the city of Muscat. I thought it was a royal palace until I learned it was a bank.

The door looks like it is made entirely of gold. Rumour has it that the top of its columns and the door are plated with gold. That would explain the fence!
