Well worth a visit, a guide who gave useful information and a manageable fort to stroll around. Great view and recommended for a pit stop

Guess what...it's still not open. We stopped by while we were in Sur on a half-day tour out of Muscat. Since it is located on a hillside, it does provide great views over the city of Sur for taking pictures, but aside from walking around and admiring the traditional architecture of the newly constructed building that constitutes the fort, there really isn't much to see. I would recommend stopping by if you are in the area. However, it is not really worthy of going out of your way to visit.

April 2017 - still closed for maintenance as others have alluded but offers good views of the surrounding area. You will not need long here if it is closed still, when you get here, but certainly worth a stop for the view, if nothing else.

This fort was closed at the time of my visit, and honestly, it doesn't seem like much from the outside. However, as the fort stands on top of a hill just outside Sur, it offers a really nice view over Sur. The view is worth stopping for if you are passing by the fort.

This fort is nicely restored. It could use more stuff to fill the rooms inside to give you an idea of how it looked in use. It's a good quick stop if you're in Sur, but I wouldn't make a special trip from Muscat. Entry is a half rial. Open from 0730 to 0530, Sun through Thursday. Closed Friday and Saturday. Guide spoke English and Arabic. Not sure about other languages. It's mostly self explanatory. If you've seen other forts in Oman already, it's more of the same.
