Jabrin Fort, Jabrin

(4.7/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Unlike other forts along the geography of the country, this Fort is in very good condition. It shows that is later than any other time, and that its use was much more exclusive.

Visit recommended if it is minimally useful.
