  • The ruins themselves are not that old (20th century) but still quite catching and impressive to think there once was a village at this place. Make sure you walk to the top, and between the ruins at the bottom of the hill. Also at the back deeper in the mountain the views are impressive.
  • A must visit blast from the past. You can take your picnic and enjoy the small park. Better yet, find a suitable area in the valley itself. Short on amenities.
  • An open air museum with ruins under restoration. No admission fee amd free to explore.
  • love to know the history and see the heritage in the old cities in Oman.
  • The ruins lay beside the wadi and the ruins here are not as big as the Birkat al mouz however you will notice the similarities of placement of the community near the water source in this case the wadi tanuf if you are familiar with the bottled wate brand this is where the factory is located thoug you have to walk upstream to see the dam and the manufacturing plant.
