Oman Photo Gallery - Bahla Fort

Oman Flag

Upon arriving in Nizwa from Muscat, I wanted to cover the 2 more interesting attractions outside of town before finishing my day. Bahla was once the capital of Oman for almost 500 years, and 12km of its old walls are still intact today. This oasis was fueled by the falaj system of wells and underground channels to make groundwater accessible.

One of the reasons why I prefer these over the more convenient fort in Nizwa is the far more affordable admission of 500 baisas each, which can be paid by credit card.

Bahla Fort

Bahla Fort occupies a hillside location and is believed to date from the late 13th century, with a UNESCO restoration project completed in 2012. Once inside, you are free to roam the many buildings, rooms, and take in the views.
