The Nizwa fort is the crowning jewel of Nizwa. It was built in the 17th century and stands tall and proud even today. This fort is unique among other forts in Oman due to the cylindrical shape of its main tower which also happens to be the biggest to tower in a fort in Oman. It has seven wells, a number of prisons, and prosecution ground. The main tower features many defence mechanisms Omanis used in the past such as pitfalls, honey traps, and gun shooting windows. The fort also contains many exhibits and artefacts displayed in each of the rooms of the fort. There is also a nice gift shop and a permanent exhibition that illustrates the geographical history of Oman. Offering great views of the Grand mosque, it is worth climbing all the way up just to witness Nizwa in all its glory.
