  • Excellent place. Well maintain. They provide hand held devices that narrate historic events and importance of the place. There are 2 graves within the castle and many secret passages and artefacts. Must visit place as it is a short hour and half drive from Muscat.
  • Beautiful place to visit with family, kind tourist guides and historical items
