Jabrin Fort in Oman

By Seif Kamel
   Jabrin Fort is one of the distinctive historical sites in Oman. Visitors to
the country usually are attracted to its natural magic and beauty.
Nevertheless, there are a few monuments that are quite worth a visit.
   Constructed in 1670 by Belarab ibn Sultan, the structure is quite
impressive with 3 floors, more than 50 rooms and carious chambers. The
fort also hosts the mausoleum of its founder; Belarab Ibn Sultan. Today,
it is among the highlights commonly included in many travel packages
to Oman.
   In 1982, the Omani government carried out extensive restoration works
in Jabrin Fort to become a national monument and an open air museum
of Islamic arts and styles.
