  • The Khasab Castle was built on the ruins of the ancient castle built during the Portuguese rule of which keeps parts like the tower. The central tower was converted into a museum which displays archaeological and several handicrafts. Other rooms have been restored and furnished with traditional furniture and there are also traditional costumes and jewelry.
