Description
View of Bahla castle in Oman.
Bahla is know for its 7-mile long walls which can still be seen today, but have come down in places. The fort is constructed of mud, coated with gypsum and sarooj (a traditional type of mortar) which are as hard and solid as present-day cement. UNESCO has approved Bahla castle and Wall for inclusion in its World Heritage List. Ever since, the castle has been undergoing severe restorations and it is currently off-limits to visitors.
