This Spectacular Omani Fortress Pre-Dates the Islamic Era

Near the north coast of Oman, in the province of Nakhal, is a spectacular fortress that pre-dates the Islamic era.

The pre-Islamic (the exact date is unknown) structure that was the foundation for later additions to Nakhal Fort was built around a large, oddly shaped boulder at the base of Mount Nakhal, which occasionally juts out into the fort’s interior. This is why the fort is an irregular shape.
