Jibeeen Castle is a very well done reconditioned 17th century castle. Free audio tours are provided to all interested visitors, containing good historical information. It is an easy, short drive from Nizwa.

Well worth a visit to this fascinating Castle. Wonderful historical place that was built in the late 1600s. The highlights of the castle tour include the falaj system – irrigation channels that bring water to the castle from distant springs – which you will encounter...More

This spectacular restored 17c fort was beautiful to view inside and out. It is wonderful to wander the rooms and passages and is incredibly photogenic. For me it was the best fort compared to Nizwa and Bahla who seem to attract more of the attention....More

There are many tours from Muscat that will take you to this fort. Make sure you have at least one hour to explore it, because it has many (hidden) rooms. It's quite interesting since it's not in a city but in the midst of palm...More

In my opinion, this castle is more beautiful & interesting than the Nizwa Fort. Beautifully designed with complex architecture and secret rooms. Nice view from the roof top of the surrounding plain. Audio guide available for self guided tour

I read that if you're going to see a fort, this was the fort to see. We were glad we stopped here as it was a complete building, not ruins or partially restored. It got 50 bashar per person, well worth the cost. We found...More
