Take a tour of Jibreen Castle, an imposing 17th-century fortress built by Bil’arab Bin Sultan, Omani ruler from the Yaruba Dynasty. The well-preserved castle stands alone, dominating the fertile plain near the town of Jabrin, making for a picturesque, postcard-like sight. Explore the maze-like chambers and courtyards of the walled castle, some of them elaborately decorated with carvings and painted ceilings, see the tomb of the late ruler, and gaze upon the scenic central courtyard and the surrounding plains from the top of the fortress. A visit to Jibreen Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Jabrin tour site to plot your vacation.

  • Visited on our way from Nizwa to Muscat, so glad we stopped. This restored gem, unlike it’s original intention, is such a peaceful and beautiful place to spend time. The photos simply don’t do it...

  • Such a beautiful castle. Really worth visiting. I recommend to visit in the evening for the sunset. The views are amazing. The people in the castle are super friendly too.
  • The castle's history was amazing. I loved how we got a free audio tour of the castle and each of the individual rooms. Its huge!
