  • I didn't have the chance to get inside. It is near the palace Al Alam, ideal for a relaxing walk and to take some pictures from the old port.

  • For me a somewhat haunting experience. I first saw this Fort 57 years ago when working on a cargo ship delivering cargo to Muscat. We could only anchor off in the port and a barge came out for our cargo to be delivered. The Fort was all I could see of Muscat. At the time no other buildings could be seen or had been built at all. A reminder how the human race is changing the face of planet earth.
  • Nice place, but it's not open for tourists.
