It is worthwhile having a look close up - however unfortunately when I was there the entrance was blocked by stair repairs and so it was not possible to climb up into it - so check before you go.

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.
