Travel to Nizwa & Jebel Shams

Travel to Nizwa & Jebel Shams "Oman Grand canyon"

A'Dakhiliyah Governorate occupies a distinctive location on the western slopes of Al Hajar Mountains (the slopes of Al Jabal Al Akhdhar) towards the desert in the south. A'Dakhiliyah Governorate has played a role of great significance in Oman’s history, particularly with regard to the spread of Islam in Oman. Nizwa, the capital of Oman in the early days of Islam, was the cradle of ardent intellectual activity and produced generations of Omani scientists, scholars and historians. That’s why it has been called “the egg of Islam”. Its towering historic castle still stands today as well as many forts, castles, ancient mosques and other beautiful tourist sites. Nizwa District is also famous for its many old houses.

a wonderful opportunity to see a souk of goats and cows..The market is quite frenetic as the sellers can’t always control their cows, and some try to break away, like bulls running through the streets of Pamplona, dragging their owners behind them. A couple of times I regret wearing my red and blue plaid shirt, remembering that bulls in bullfights like to charge at the color red. I jump back away from the sidelines several times as I see cows running helter-skelter in my direction!

Do you remember any of Arabic fairy tales? If yes, then of course you've heard about magnificent Arabic forts ! So it's a high time for exploring Omani historical heritage. The Nizwa Fort is a 17th century castle inside the city of Nizwa, one of the country oldest cities and known as the Pearl of Islam. As well as its historical significance it does also act as a natural gateway to some of the highest and most majestic mountains, is a great vantage point for viewing of Hajar Mountains and surrounding town. Jabreen Castle ("the most beautiful historic castle in the whole of Oman "according to guidebooks) was built in the late 17th century. It used to serve at the same time as a military fort, as a school and as the place of residence of the sovereign of Oman, at the time where Jabreen was the capital city of Oman. The decorated windows and wooden balconies are an authentic expression of Omani craftsmanship. Excited? let's start our journey !
