  • Taqah Castle is about 45 minutes drive from Salalah. Sympathetically restored, it gives you an insight into the daily lives of the people in 19th century Oman. This was the home of the grandfather of ...  more »
  • There is very little castle. This is an old house converted into a Museum, decorated with a few items of little interest. To visit only if passing

  • Friday is holiday. Other days it's open. Has a castle and some old exhibits inside a nearby building
  • Nice historical site and museum worth a drop in while touring these surrounding areas of Salalah.
  • 👍Just for historic person, the entry fees is 1 rial. Guidance and history will be explained by the incharge. Good to see but just for one time. If your coming for salalah tour then this place is included in the list.👌
  • Interesting history and was a pleasant visit. The staff was very welcoming, very friendly and eager to teach you about the history of the Castle.
  • Historical place well maintained in it's heritage identity , Recommended for history lovers . NK

Where to stay in Salalah

The main hotels of Salalah sit close to the sea, enjoying extensive views of the coast, private beaches, pools, and fine-dining restaurants. Some particularly luxurious resorts can be found along the coastal roads, with sculpted grounds and onsite malls. Inland, where the real city sits, you'll find some similarly luxurious hotels. However, there's a much greater choice of standard options, with a pool perhaps, a restaurant for sure, and comfortable rooms. Rental apartments along 23rd July Street provide perhaps the best budget-friendly options in town.
