On 17 January 2017, and while it was clearly written on the door the castle closed at 4pm, I could enter it at that precise hour and visit it slowly with the much instructive and lively audioguide. Heavily restored, the fort includes a set of really pretty rooms still adorned with pots, vases, cushions, most of them coming with somptuous... More

Jabrin fort was one among 3 we visited (Bahla and Nizwa). I think it is better to choose one and not to spend time to all three because there are look alike. I would say that Bahla was the most impressive. However, Jabrin is also well maintained if you are in to forts and castles.

This beautifully restored fort has so much to see. The audio guides are very well done and it does not matter in which order you follow the numbers, Don't miss the horse's private 1st floor room and the access to that room by the transformed staircase, The madrassah school at the top presents the best of views. The date chambers... More

Visited several forts on my trip through Oman (incl Nakhal, Bahla, Nizwa). Liked them all, but this one was by far the one that most impressed me, especially because of the interior design. The atmosphere inside the fort is amazing.

Decent fort in the middle of no-where. I preferred the Nizwa Fort with the museum like information to this one. All the rooms started looking exactly the same after the first 3 or 4.

A beautifully renovated castle that shows so much from Omani history. Views of Jebel Shams mountain range are amazing from the top level of the castle.

Well restored castle that is worth exploring. Big courtyeard, lots of artefacts and nice views. It is well lit in the evenings and also has a shaded camping area with common bathrooms towards the back for people who want to sleep over. Has a hotel very close by for people wanting a bit more comfort.

This is a very well restored 17th Century fort with a lot of information about the region and its history, with plenty of rooms and battlements to wander around and get a feel for the history. There is a self guided tour that tells you the purpose of all the different rooms. Well worth a visit - we did it... More

I really enjoyed visiting Jabrin Fort. It is an amazing restoration and really explains how the fort was used for living and also defense. Make sure you get the audio guide that explains all the different areas... The Whispering Room! You simply cannot visit the area with visiting Jabrin Fort, our guide said it was actually a Castle.
