Jabrin, Oman: A landmark castle
by Prakash Bang, Editor in Chief

Jabrin Castle, Jabrin, Oman

30-minute drive away is the Jabrin Castle or a Fort, if you may. It was built by Imam Sultan bin Saif Al Ya'arubi in 1670. It was a castle initially and afterwards two towers were added to it and was transformed to a fort when Imam moved his capital from Nizwa to Jabrin.

The fort includes many rooms for Imam and his wives, guests and soldiers, a large date store, a stable, a Mosque and a Quran school on the roof top, a spacious kitchen and a beautiful courtyard in addition to separate prisons for men and women. The fort also has its own water wells and an irrigation channel flowing through it. The castle has rooms and ceilings decorated with fine carvings and finely painted flowers and symbols. After his death Imam was buried in this fort and his very modest tomb lies within the fort.
