Panoramic views of Nakhal village
Dating back to pre-Islamic times, Nakhal Fort is one of the most well-known forts in Oman. Built on the top of a large rock, the fort has undergone many improvements over the centuries and today welcomes visitors looking to enjoy panoramic views of Nakhal village and the historic artefacts collection housed within the museum.
Built on the foundations of a pre-Islamic structure, the towers and entrance of this fort were constructed during the reign of Imam Said Bin Sultan in 1834. There are excellent views of the Batinah Plain from the ramparts, and the majlis (reception room) on the top ‘storey’ of the fort makes a cool place to enjoy the tranquillity. The windows are perfectly aligned to catch the breeze, even in summer.
