Nakhal Fort

Oman’s most picture-perfect fort



Nakhal Fort is surrounded by orchards of palm trees (nakhl meaning palm)


The construction of the castle dates back to the pre-islamic era more than 1500 years ago


The shape of the fort follows the irregular outline of the massive boulder on which the fort is built, with some rock exposures jutting out into the interiors

The lower level of the fort has a mosque, a well and a date storage room, while the upper level of the fort has residential quarters
