A must-see destination

Jabreen Castle is a must-see destination located just a short drive from Bahla. It is truly an architectural masterpiece with intricate mural designs, traditional Omani crafts, and a beautiful view of the surrounding date palm oasis.

Rising without competition from the surrounding plain, Jabreen Castle is an impressive sight. Even if you have had a surfeit of fortifications, it’s worth making the effort to clamber over one more set of battlements – Jabreen is one of the best-preserved and whimsical castles of them all. Head for the flagpole for a bird’s-eye view of the latticed-window courtyard at the heart of the keep; the rooms here have distinctive painted ceilings.
