a great place to visit for something a little different to the Castes of Europe. Oman is a spectacular country, and the views from the top of this castle are sublime on a clear day. Well worth the visit, get a guide for the whole story.
Apart from the structure of Jabrin Fort, (also referred to as Jabreen Castle), it contains a number of old items/artefacts on display. Visitors to the fort are provided with an audio guide, which assists a route round the fort. However, in a small number of cases, following the number sequence required a little searching. The guide explains the likely occupants... 更多

Well, it appears that anything goes for this well known construct dating back to 1670, considered to be one of the most beautiful castle/forts in Oman.

A must if you want to know more on Oman... 更多

Would strongly recommend you visit if you find yourself in the area as its only 5 km from Bahla anwyay, If you only have time to visit one fort in this district then... 更多
This should be on everyone's itinerary in Oman. The castle is fascinating and even held the attention of our 8 year old for two hours. The audio guide gives a little bit of the background to make the visit more interesting. Unlike other forts in the area, Jabrin has furniture in all of the rooms to make the rooms come... 更多
