Built by the Nabhani dynasty in the 17th century, this castle is a large mud-brick palace located in Yanqul, a remote village at the base of Jebel Al Hawra.
North of Ibri, along the Ibri – Al Rustaq road, are the twin settlements of Al Araqi and Al Aynayn. Their forts provide a beautiful contrast – one newly restored, the other beautifully atmospheric showing all the signs of its history.
A must-see attraction in the A’Dhahira region, the Al Ayn & Bat Beehive Tombs are not only recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site, but also boast the title of the most complete collection of necropolises and settlements in the world, dating back to the 3rd Millennium BC.
Ibri Fort was built over 400 years ago and opened for public viewing in 1995 after renovations. It is home to one of the oldest mosques still in use in the country and visitors can take in stunning views across the area from the building’s battlements. One of the fort’s more unique features is the fact that is has many gates which were each built for a different purpose.
