Oman’s noble heritage is evident throughout the country and the Muscat Governorate features several notable historic forts that hark back to the country’s past. From Old Muscat’s Al Mirani Fort or its 16th-century Al Jalali fort, perched high on rocky cliffs looking out over the Sea of Oman, to the three circular towers of Mutrah Fort sat high overlooking the bustling corniche, the region is alive with history.
