(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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 itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • A beautifully renovated castle that shows so much from Omani history. Views of Jebel Shams mountain range are amazing from the top level of the castle. 
  • This castle is famous for Omani architecture and its painted ceilings. Initially it was a Centre for the study of astrology, medicine and Islamic law. At the entrance to the warehouse of dates where it was collected. Interesting interiors with rooms furnished with rugs and cushions, kitchen, the tomb of the Imam, the horse room etc.. To see.
