  • Large, beautifully restored fort. Takes about 1-2 hours to walk through it. Also has incredibly clean restrooms. Watch out for the little bats in the darker, quieter rooms.

  • Beautiful big fort in Oman. Bigger than Nizwa. Great architecture. It’s just a shame that there are no more attributes in the rooms. Almost every room is empty. Some old antiques would be nice.

  • The fort is really nice and quiet during weekdays, which makes you feel the place is yours LOL. One of the places has small bats, so be ready if you don't like them.

  • Beautiful by night, and interesting to walk around in by day. The fort is well kept and sits on a hill surrounded by greenery and the town of Bahla.

  • Very nice clean place. Good historical site to visit. Small bats can be seen inside too.
