It is estimated that there are over 500 forts, Castles and towers in Oman. Our visit today would include a few of them which are more remarkable & striking in their Architecture & style. The ancient capital of Oman, Nizwa, was a seat of learning and the birthplace of Islam in Oman. The 17th century Round fort and the souq famous for the silver jewelry are the major attraction of Nizwa. Not to mention the popular & interesting cattle auction, which takes place on every Friday. Built on a scold base of rock, the huge tower was designed to withstand the vibration of 24 cannons.
We move on to Bahla, famous for its handmade pottery. Bahla is listed in UNESCOS world heritage sites however the fort here is now under renovation and is not open to public.
