Jabrin Fort, Jabrin

Take a tour of Jabrin Fort, an imposing 17th-century fortress built by Bil’arab Bin Sultan, Omani ruler from the Yaruba Dynasty. The well-preserved castle stands alone, dominating the fertile plain near the town of Jabrin, making for a picturesque, postcard-like sight. Explore the maze-like chambers and courtyards of the walled castle, some of them elaborately decorated with carvings and painted ceilings, see the tomb of the late ruler, and gaze upon the scenic central courtyard and the surrounding plains from the top of the fortress. A visit to Jabrin Fort represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Jabrin tour site to plot your vacation.

  • Large Castle in the traditional omanisch/Portuguese construction. Many rooms some with bats. Well restored, however, hardly furnished. Beautiful view from the towers on the mountains and desert.

  • Beautiful old fort and one really feels the history within the thick walls. There a guided tour with headphones and I highly recommend it in order to get the full history  more »
  • Us has very well liked and thanks to the audio guide, it was very exciting. In the castle itself, there are very few times an information plaque. It is therefore not comparable to European castles where you can learn a lot through the written information. The audio guide in the entry of 500 B6a is included, it is imperative to recommend. Time have we lingers us over an hour with the ca 34 stations of incl views enjoy. We would absolutely recommend visiting.
