  • Tourist attractions , neat and clean place , fort is the main attraction , evening vibe is superb. Its feels a small hiking to reach the top of the fort. The inside view gives an ancient feel of the Arabian culture. Feel the breeze is a nice feeling at the place. Beautiful place for hangout for family. A lot of parking space is available at the down area of the fort valley. Better to keep a bottle of water when you start go the top of the fort.
  • Well maintained fort, with a small heritage village around it. Very easy to access. Definitely worth a visit, if you are around and are interested in history.
