Khasab Fort Oman is located in Khasab, Musandam. The Portuguese built it in the 17th century on top of an ancient fort. They aimed to take over the Strait of Hormuz and kept the Khasab castle as a place for supplying dates and water to the Portuguese ships. But Omanis ousted them out in 1624 and used it as a residence for the Wali of Khasab and also as a city prison.
The renovated castle now houses an exhibition on the history of Musandam. Take a glimpse into the bits and bobs of 19th-century life in Khasab Oman and view the ancient artifacts, canons, and traditional dhows displayed there. Khasab Castle is a must place to see in Musandam.
