Bahla Fort is an excellently done UNESCO site. This 12th to 16th century constructed fort and citadel is HUGE. It towers over the city and landscape and the labyrinth of rooms are fun to explore. The lack of placards or video tour is a gap,...More

A good place to visit if u are interested in history.... the place is big and people with disability would find it difficult to move around in the fort ....

If you’re around nizwa and jebel shams you definitely should drive through bahla! It has been a huge fort back in time! And the story about the witch city is still very interesting!

Grand fort with dominating towers and walls. A great place to explore and for photos. Less exhibits than neighbouring forts but still impressive nonetheless. An easy stop on the way to Jebel Shams. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Excited to see a WHS 2 hours away from our hotel but really disappointed once there! All the exciting parts of the fort were closed off to public viewing. Lots of empty rooms with no explanation as to what they were used for.
