The defensive tower was very practical and solid for the time, and it is now an experience to enter it as a scenic spot.
Walk into the castle and explore the story of One Thousand and One Nights! Oman·Asia The Sultanate of Oman, or “Oman” for short, is the only country in the Arabian Peninsula that has beaches, mountains and deserts at the same time. There are rich natural beauty and ancient souls here. The sailor Sinbad in "One Thousand and One Nights" and the Queen of Sheba, who once owned the Ark, are from Oman. And in central Oman there is such a mysterious ancient city, Nizwa Castle. Nizwa Castle Nizwa Fort Opening hours: Friday: 8:00-11:30 Saturday to Thursday: 8:00-20:00 Built in 1668, it was originally built as a defensive fortress. It is one of the oldest and largest castles in Oman. In addition to the castle, there is a bunker. There is an introduction material about it at the entrance, and there is also an influence data room. If you want to learn more about it, it is highly recommended to watch it. There is a museum in the castle, mainly showing the past history of Oman and local life. The dark room, dungeon, and kitchen in the castle are still intact. There is a tower on the top of the castle, and a lush palm forest can be seen on it. Nizwa Market Nizwa Market is located outside the castle. There are different kinds of markets inside, such as fish market, vegetable market, meat market, etc. There are also many shops selling small commodities. The things sold are very suitable for souvenirs. It has an Arab style. At the vegetable market, I also ran into a businessman holding a Huawei p30, who earned 350 rials a month, and bought this 250 rial mobile phone. He also praised China's top cargo!
Nizwa, the ancient capital of Oman, looks like our loess high slope at first glance. The castle is like the ancient Loulan country in the desert. Nizwa, you may not have heard of this name, maybe its presence in our lives is not very high. But this city, once the capital of Oman, is ancient, historical, mysterious and great.
