  • Al Jalali Fort guards the entrance to the Harbour to the East. The property was built during the Portuguese occupation in the late 16th century on Arab foundations. On top of a rock and reached by a flight of steps is a good view of the harbor. Closed some time ago for work and only accessible with permission of the Ministry for which we were limited to the view from the harbour towards dusk. Integrated with curtain walls and towers on the ridge is still a nice view.

  • We can see this is the sister og Miurin fort . Always their names are connected together. This was completed by Portuguese during the war against Oman in 1587 and then it was rebuilt by Said bin sultan in the beginning of 19th century. Again it was modified by his Magesty Sultan bin Qaboos in the modern life .
  • Only to be seen from the square in front Al Alam palace.
  • Historical castle
