Sohar Fort Musuem

2

This was the first stop on the touristy places that my folks brought me during my stay in Oman over the holidays. It is situated about a 10-minute drive from the city center and a couple hundred meters from the shoreline, or they what the call corniche. I was a bit disappointed when we read the poster on the door that it was closed for renovations. I would just have to settle shooting its perimeter.

A couple of weeks after, we dropped by again. We were not successful for it is still off-limits. As we were about to leave, I noticed a handful of tourists on one side of the fort, so I followed them and was amazed that there was a garden beside it, not to mention a good view of a nearby mosque. Well, their tour guide decided to just describe what was inside and I can’t help but eavesdrop.

I guess it was not meant to be. I’m officially intrigued by it, this would be a reason for me to go back, aside from seeing family, of course.
