Nakhal Fort Oman is a 17th-century fort in Oman built by Sassanids in the pre-Islamic period. Later, it survived the Ya'arubah dynasty and was restored many times down the centuries. ‘Nakhal’ in Arabic means ‘palms’. No wonder, you will find it amid a panoramic view of lush green date palms and the blue mountains. Built on an uneven rock, it was a vantage point to observe the entire oasis and protect trade routes. You can still spot some rocks forming part of the inside rooms. Walk in and view the traditional rooms of Wali and his family. Glance through the museum inside. You will find exhibits of historic guns, canons, traditional furniture, handicrafts, and artifacts. But nothing would match the awe-inspiring view from the rooftop. Prince Charles was here in 2003. The Nakhal fort also hosts a goat market every week.
Do check out the hot spring of Ain Al Thawwarah Nakhal nearby and indulge in a free fish spa session!
