Muscat combines the charms of an old world Arab enclave with the amenities of a fast paced metropolis. Nestled between the turquoise blue waters of Gulf of Oman and the rugged mountains of AI Hajr Al Sharyi, here you will find a harmonious blend of traditional culture, cuisine, arts and architecture with the unbridled energy of modern life. No doubt, Muscat embodies the finest of the Middle East. Winter is the best time to visit Muscat. It sprinkles the city with a myraid of colours. Flowers and green plants pop up from nowhere painting the alleys and parks with a variety of colours. It is as though the spring has descended on the city sprinkling her floral possessions all around. It is nothing short of a lifetime’s delight to drive around the city in the winter months. There is no parallel to the scientifically constructed network of roads and artistically designed roundabouts and the structures that greet the visitor as he traverses across the city. On their way out of airport visitors
will be greeted by artificial water cascade right across the airport, the Date Palm lined pavements of Al Azaiba, the colourful sculptures and figurines that dot the way, the shining domes of the mosques and the roundabout in Wadi Kabir. There is much more that pleases the eyes and fills the soul of a sightseer. The low lying buildings which are mostly painted in white and light colours merge beautifully with the pristine surroundings. A perennial serenity prevails in the city. After getting acquainted with the capital of Oman plan your trips to explore the interiors.
Al Jalali and Al Mirani Forts
The forts of Al Jalali and Al Mirani which stand as sentinels at the entrance to Muscat bay are the city’s prominent landmarks built in 16 th century AD. Mirani, originally shaped like a tower was built before the arrival of the Portuguese. The Portuguese rebuilt it on the ruins of its old structure in 1588. The building was enlarged to its present size during the reign of Imam Ahmed bin Said, the founder of the Al Busaidi state in the 18th century, and his grandson Sayyid Said bin Sultan, at the beginning of the 19th century. The construction of Jalali Fort was completed by the Portuguese in 1587. It is rebuilt to its present structure during the reign of Sayyid Said bin Sultan, and this Fort was restored and converted into a museum in the reign of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.
Al Alam Palace
The beautifully grandiose Al Alam Palace is the ceremonial palace of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said .Built in 1972 it has a fairytale facade of towering gold and blue pillars wrapped in wrought iron and edged in green. Visitors can approach it on foot via the Kebir Gate in the old city
walls for best views. Though they are not allowed inside even the outside is impressive. Al Alam Palace is surrounded by the Mirani and Jalali Forts built in the 16th century by the Portuguese.
Parks and gardens
The parks and gardens in Muscat infuse life into the city that it is carved out of an arid and rocky landscape. It is as though the desert and mountains have bowed out to make way for the verdant magnificence.
Riyam and Kalbou parks are the most popular evening spots in the Old Muscat city. Overlooking the sea, they not only impress the visitors with their location, but also with their design and purpose. Riyam park provides a stunning view of harbour and sea cliffs. Here one can go on the numerous rides that rock the park in the evenings. While in Kalbou take a stroll or dip a line to catch fish. If you are interested to learn about the rich heritage of the Sultanate, drop into the four main museums in the city, which include the
Muttrah Harbour and fish market
Muttrah Harbour and fish market near Muttrah Corniche is one of the interesting sites that tourist love to stop by and watch the live activity of fishing boats coming home with their catch and fishermen selling their fresh catch. Muttrah Harbour is a circular, deep water, natural anchorage, where tankers, barges, ferries and cruise ships mingle with traditional Arab dhows. From early morning till 10 am each day the harbour is home to a bustling fish market where visitors can see, hear and smell the catch of the day from the rich marine life of the Arabian
Sea being unloaded and sold. You can see different types of boats and ships bringing loads of catch, with the birds flying around the sea side producing their beautiful voice. In side the market there is a vast selection of ocean-fresh fish, squid and crab to choose from. There are special areas where the cutting of the fish is done. The variety of different type of fishes in Oman sea gives an idea how Omani sea is rich of marine life.
Shop in the Souq
The Souq (market) in Muttrah is a landmark which any discerning tourist can ill afford to miss. Typical Omani souvenirs that range from the Khanjar (the curved dagger), and silver jewellery to spices, frankincense garments and household items are available here. Bargaining is the norm. Apart from the unique shopping experience, what will enchant you are the ambience and the structure of the Souq that reflect distinctive
Arabic tradition. The tall arch that frames the entrance and the canopied roof made of palm fronds takes to a time and place from the Arabian Nights. For a leisurely shopping stroll, it is best to visit the Souq in the mornings or late afternoons when the crowd is minimal. The place gets busy after six in the evening.
