Nizwa Fort :- The erection of Nizwa fort, which was started in the seventeenth century by Sultan Bin Saif Al Yarubi, the utmost important member of the Yarubi tribe, and finished in twelve years, has a long and illustrious history. However, this Fort was constructed by Imam Al Sultan bin Malik Al Kharusi during the ninth century.

Two cannons guard the tower’s entrance, as well as a labyrinth of rooms, high-ceilinged halls, doorways, terraces, narrow staircases and corridors that give you a deeper look at the ingenuity of Omani architecture.
Nizwa Souq (Market):- which is close to the Nizwa fort, will offer you a taste of the past of Oman because most of its buildings still feature the country’s historical buildings.

Drive to Jabreen Castle 42 Km, 30 Minutes
Jabreen Castle:- Jabreen Castle rises majestically from the neighboring plain without opposition. Even though there is an abundance of defenses, Jabreen is among the most charming and well-preserved fortresses out there. Hence it’s worth the struggle to scale another series of battlements. You’ve to head towards the flagpole for a bird’s-eye glimpse of the courtyard with honeycomb windows at the keep’s center. The spaces here have unique colored ceilings. In contrast to other castles and forts in Oman, Jabreen Castle was constructed in 1675 by Imam Bil-Arab Bin Sultan and served as a significant hub of education for Islamic law, medicine, and astrology. Within the extensive battlements, there’s a great deal to understand about the castle’s history.
Drive to Bahla Fort 9 Km, 15 Minutes
Bahla Fort:- Bahla Fort, among the biggest in Oman, now towers over the expansive contemporary community of Bahla following years of repair. It was constructed by the Bani Nabhan clan, which ruled the region from the twelfth to the fifteenth century, and was designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1987. Although this massive fort has a couple of interpretive panels, its expansive vista from the castle walls and size are its main draws. A beautiful illustration of a medieval Islamic society built over the Falaj is the neighborhood’s mud-brick homes (irrigation channels). The winding roads here are best explored on foot.
Drive to Falaj Daris & Birkat Al Mouz 53 Km, 40 Minutes
Falaj Daris:- The Falaj Daris is perhaps Oman’s biggest Falaj and a World Heritage Site in Nizwa, giving the city the water it needs for its farmlands and crops. Locals frequently visit the park created on a little fraction of the Falaj! This old Falaj is thought to date back to 2500 BC! Hence, While you’re on vacation in Nizwa, the Falaj is an excellent location to unwind and relax!
Birkat Al Mouz:- In Oman’s Nizwa province, in the Ad Dakhiliyah district, is the historic hamlet of Birkat Al Mouz. It also houses the reconstructed fort known as Bait al Redidah and functions as the gateway to the Wadi Al-Muaydin on Jebel Akhdar’s southern edge. We highly suggest you make a pit break at the Birkat Al Mouz remains on your approach to Jebel Akhdar since the scenery from this village will transport you to a different era.
