Building: Jabrin Fort
Sponsored By: The Sultanate of Oman's Ministry of Tourism &
The Consulate General of the Sultanate of Oman
Constructed By: Cockington Green Gardens
About the Building:
Forts and Castles are Oman's most striking cultural landmarks and, together with its
towers and city walls, have historically been used as defensive bastions or look-out points
and often the seats of administrative and judicial authority. There are over 500 forts, castles
and towers in Oman. Architectural styles vary, depending on the architects who
designed them and the periods in which they were built. Jabrin Fort was built by
Imam Sultan bin Saif Al Ya'arubi in 1670 as a summer residence and defensive stronghold.
It is one of the most impressive forts in the Sultanate and the exquisitely decorated ceilings and
carvings in the rooms and balconies are most elaborate.
