Muscat: Al Hamra is a well-preserved old town in Ad Dakhiliyah, Oman.

Walking through its warren of alleys and stone steps is like going back in time.

A time when houses of mud were the mainstays of domestic culture in the Sultanate.

Though some of the walls are crumbling, the place exudes authentic old-world charm.

One of the tourist draws here is Bait Al Safah, a museum filled with objects from traditional Omani life.
