Very large fort. Inexpensive, but not much info about the history. Still undergoing renovations/restoration. You can roam just about all of the fort, a few placards do provide some historical info. The 'mud' construction is clearly visible on the walls and is interesting.

The fort is huge, well-maintained, and impressive. However, the rooms are empty (bats aside) and all the same.

The fort is really grand and majestic. Roughly a half an hour drive from the main city. Probably the biggest fort we've seen during our stay in Oman. If I had to choose between jibreen castle and this, I'd definitely come here.

At 0.5 OMR, it's cheap to explore this UNESCO world heritage site. The rooms are mostly empty, though. Spectacular views of the countryside.
