Oman interiors

Oman values its heritage, no more so than in the forts of the interior of the country west of the mountains. I remember them from the 1980s either as active residences of the local tribal leaders or as gently crumbling ruins. Many of them have been restored recently, occasionally to a standard worthy of Disney, but mostly, as here in Jabrin and Bahla, showing the purity of the original designs and proportions.
