Oman’s lush green summer resort in the southern province of Dhofar is known for its tropical banana plantation.

Jabrin Castle

This well-preserved fort was built in 1675 and was an important center of learning for Islamic law, astrology and medicine.

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Located in the capital city, Muscat, this mosque is made up of 300,000 tons of sandstone. It covers an area of 416,000 square meters and can hold up to 20,000 worshipers.
