Description
City gate in Old Muscat, Oman. From the sixteenth century until as recently as 1970, Old Muscat was a walled city where the gates were locked at sunset, and anyone failing to carry a lantern illuminating their face was arrested. In a land in which radio, television and newspapers were prohibited, the city walls were the main means of administrative communication in Oman: the sultan announced his decrees simply by posting them on the city walls. Entrance to Old Muscat from Muttrah is a via a spectacular double carriageway gate. This is the site of the Muscat Gate House Museum, a modern structure opened in 2001 and not, as sometimes supposed, one of the original gates to the city.
