Nizwa, capital of the interior, is the birthplace of Islam in the Sultanate of Oman. Nizwa
boasts of the famous Round Tower Fort,  built in the 17th century, and its Souq renowned
for its Friday cattle auction, intricately hand-carved “Khanjars” (daggers) & ornamental silver jewellery. Jabrin, the finest of Oman’s castles built in the late 17th century, became a seat of Omani learning. The castle displays the highest achievement in Omani ceiling painting & beautifully executed woodcarvings. Enroute to Muscat visit the pretty village of Birkat Al Mauz situated at the foothills of Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountains). Enjoy a walk through its oasis and dense date plantations.
