(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.

  • The Jabreen Castle near the town of Bahla is an impressive testimony of the past in the Oman. Based on an audio guide, which is available in various languages (also German), to get detailed information about the Castle, the former use of the rooms, whose inhabitants and life within these walls themselves. The tour takes visitors to the ground floor there is the kitchen and the store rooms on the first floor with a library, reception and dining rooms up on the second floor with private rooms and the courtroom, and finally on to the roof, where even a mosque is located next to the terraces. All in all a very interesting and worthwhile destination.

  • The Castle fortress built in the 17th century not a defence, but as the summer residence of the Sultan has high sandstone walls and towers around a large courtyard. It has been restored. Inside, you can see beautifully decorated rooms.
