This is a small castle that became a museum with some old relics in it. Its interior is simple and has an old touch where you can feel the culture of Oman. There was a friendly caretaker and he greeted us nicely and cheerfully.

This castle is interesting only for its funny-shaped watchtower. Other than that, there's not really much to see or do here. The castle is nicely restored, so if you are driving by, I would suggest a quick stop on the way.

The castle is a very historic site in Sur, take very nice photos, and close to the city. The Castle is well detailed and the guide in the fort definitely would let you know much about Oman history.

Well restored castle with each tower of a different style. Grounds have interesting cannon, wells etc. Facilities include clean bathrooms. Like many castles and forts, there is little however to explain the history or use of rooms. Imagination is required. But still the best castle...More
