The walls of the fort stretch out over one whole section of the mountsins backing up the port city of Muscat. Very interesting to ponder and you can walk/climb up to it. Unfortunately it is presently closed to the public.

An amazing fort located in muscat. One can see it upclose standing right under it and also the view is beautiful when one sees it from far. One can climb the fort also but do take precautions.

The fort is located next to the Sultan's palace. It's worth the while visiting it, when you are in the area. The view over the water is nice as well.
