Mutrah Fort

Located on top of a rocky, narrow hill, Mutrah Fort stands tall facing the sea and inhaling the winds that waft the fragrant memory of ships gone by, ships that once sailed these azure waters.

The fort seems as if it were the only passage connecting Mutrah and Muscat. Currently, it consists of three circular towers: a huge one sitting on the summit and the remaining smaller two are located one at the first point in the West, and the other, which still houses one of the old cannons, to the north of the fort near the large tower.

Ministry of Tourism has opened the first phase of the historic Muttrah Fort in Muscat for tourists after renovation.

The historic Muttrah Fort overlooks the Sultan Qaboos Tourism Port, Souq Muttrah and neighboring tourist spots. Visitors to the fort of Muttrah can reach the area by car via Souq Muttrah towards the office of Wali Muttrah, and then turning right towards the fort.

Visit Timings

The castle will open its doors to visitors throughout the week as follows:

Saturday to Thursday from 9am to 4pm
Friday from 9am to 11am and from 2pm until 4pm.
