The wilayat of Manah is in the Governorate of Al Dakhiliyah, 160km away from Muscat. It is known for its old ruined villages along with the modern houses, mosques, and towers. There are several archaeological sites and buildings in Manah of which Al Fiqain Castle is the most prominent one.
Located in Al Fiqain village, the castle was built some 400 years ago and was later renovated and restored. The castle stands tall with its high towers and is considered one of the most important historical monuments in the wilayat.
Surrounded by old houses and date-palm trees, it showcases the traditional Omani architecture. The castle is divided into northern and southern parts. While the northern part was for defence the southern part was for storing foodstuffs. The tower was officially opened on June 24, 1994 and has renovations but keeping the original design.
