Mysterious spells, the hocus-pocus, the timeless tales of black magic, the stunning architecture and what not: well that’s what the highlands of Djebel Akhdar, Oman upholds for us.
Situated in the land of magic, myths, and legends, the Bahla fort was made during the 12th to 15th century, by the then rulers of Banu Nebhan tribe. Some artifacts and apparels kept inside the fort dates back to as old as 500 BC. Due to various dynasties taking over, the fort has been built and rebuilt(modified) several times over the centuries. It was not until the UNESCO marked it the World Heritage site in the year 1987, that the Omani government decided to start a serious restoration project since then. The fort had suffered numerous ruins, and only got restored in May 2012 and was opened to the public.
