The Fort

a historic fort located in Muscat

Muttrah Fort (قلعة مطرح) is a historic fort in wilayat Muttrah in Governate of Muscat. The fort sits on a dominating position on the hills of Al Hajar mountains overlooking the natural harbor of Muttrah “The Sultan Qaboos Port”, which would have made it quite an impregnable position to defend Muttrah from attacks while also allowing observation of the surrounding territory from its watchtowers.
