Oman is a country that is famous for a range of reasons. Be it the scrumptious cuisine, the traditional music or the very exciting places of visit, Oman has a lot to offer its guests. If you have yet not ventured into this region of the world, now would be a good time to do so. In terms of music Oman has over 130 different forms of traditional songs and dances. If music interests you, when you visit this beautiful place visit the Oman Centre of Traditional Music which was established in 1984. If you are a lover of the Mediterranean cuisine, check out the food. There is a very famous and traditional dish known as the ‘Rukhal bread’ which is baked over palm leaves on an open fire. Another favourite food is the sweet made with sugar and nuts. Yet, amidst all this, it is the places of interest that are the finest in Oman.
One such place is the Mirani Fort Muscat which is a fort in the harbour in Muscat. This fort was enclosed for over 18 days during the famous capture of Muscat in 1552. This fort is of high historical importance and is thus a very famous tourist attraction. Situated on a hill, the Mirani Fort Muscat served as a great vantage point and as a great defence location. There are also twin forts located within the complex that serve as a tourist attraction as well, so make sure you visit them as well. This place will show you how the country built its defence and will take you back in time to an era that we know very little about.
Oman is a great country to visit and there is so much to do when holidaying in this country. A visit here is truly worth your time, so make sure this is a sure stop for you. When staying in Muscat, look for an Oman Muscat hotel that is perfect for your needs. A Muscat hotel such as the Millennium Resort Mussanah is a popular and great choice. When in the harbour to visit the fort, check out the amazing views as well for they are simply breathtaking. One is not allowed to take pictures inside the fort, but one can very well do so from out.
