  • Al Hazm Fort, located in the town of Al Hazm in the Wilayat of Rustaq in the Al Batinah region of the Sultanate of Oman. The great military stronghold of Al Hazm makes full use of traditional Omani defensive features such as the huge wooden gate, secret escape tunnels, dungeons, cannon towers and slots on the upper floors and there are troughs above the main entrance to pour boiling oil or honey on the rushing attackers. It was built by Imam Sultan bin Saif Al Yarubi, son of Imam Saif bin Sultan, nicknamed “The Land of the Land” in 1123 AH - 1711 AD, where he made Al Hazm his capital when he moved there from Rustaq, and there is his tomb in which he was buried. Architecturally, the fort is characterized by the absence of any timber in its ceilings, which are round arches fixed on cylinders - columns - and the width of one wall - the wall - is not less than three meters. The fort has several huge doors that do not meet with a single corridor, and it has several Portuguese and Spanish antiques. It is characterized by the presence of several special stairs for climbing horses, in addition to secret passages, each of which is two meters wide and two meters high, and these are passages that spread on the four sides of the fortress to exit after that to the city. There are also in Al Hazm fort a number of rooms that were used to teach the Noble Qur’an, sciences and religious knowledge. Open Time from Saturday to Thursday: From time: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Friday: From time: 8:00 am to 11 am. From time: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm Entry fees need to pay
  • Beautiful place. I would recommend to visit it, it’s important place for Oman’s history. They have audioguides, to explain things.
