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 itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

    Felt that the Fort alone in the middle of a plain surrounded by mountains, the view from the rooftop is the best. It is a splendid Fort canned food pantry, armoury, baths, mosques,.

    Classic example of Omani Fort that has been completely renovated. To appreciate inside the coffered ceilings and some antique object spread out among the various rooms mostly unadorned. Pleasant view of the Palm from the top of the Castle.
