UNESCO - Bahla Fort, Oman

The ruins of the immense fort, with its walls and towers of unbaked brick and its stone foundations, attests to the power of the Banu Nebhan (12-15th cent.) Bahla is an outstanding example of a fortified oasis settlement of the medieval Islamic period, exhibiting the water engineering skill of the early inhabitants for agricultural and domestic purposes.
First postcard from Oman and a Unesco site, you can imagine my satisfaction :) thank you Cresalde!
