  • The Fort is adjacent to Al Alam Palace. You do not have access to a tour inside. Don't expect a lot. But a photo stop, if only to see the context in which it is inserted, let her.

  • The Fort is located on the sea at the end of Muscat, is to look at but only from the outside. Inside, there are private things of the Sultan.

  • Good place and very old as well. Under military activity so cannot go inside. However there is a parking in front of it to admire the fort from outside and the sea as well.
  • Nice views. Under active military so cannot go inside. Well worth the short walk/drive.
  • it was quite disappointed :( because when we reach to go inside fort ... it was just Army office and no one was allowed to visit fort. event all amazing forts and near by forts occupied by Army and Navy. i wish we could visit such an amazing history of Oman.
  • The Mirani castle was built before the Portuguese came to Oman and was in the form of a large tower. In 1588, the Portuguese rebuilt the castle on the ruins of the old building, adding pads to the cannons, warehouses, the leader's residence, and a place of worship. The castle was enlarged and brought to its present size in the reign of Imam Ahmed bin Said, the founder of the 18th century Bosaidian state, and his grandson, Said bin Sultan, in the early 19th century.
  • Very nice fort located in such strategic area and together with the far around located watching towers gives you an idea about the security on past times. It is not possible to visit inside and I hope it could be open to public some day and so foster tourism.

Where to stay in Ruwi

The modern business district of the port capital, Ruwi possesses a few hotels, all fairly upmarket and set in large blocks, often combined with stores, spas, and malls. Head northwest to find the greatest range of accommodations, with most located between the expressway and the coast. Hugging the shoreline lie the sultanate's most luxurious hotels, offering sea views and a range of additional services, while farther inland sit a good range of more humble offerings, including chain hotels and guesthouses.
