Located less than an hour’s drive from the Dhofari capital of Salalah, about 48 minutes or 70 km away, Mirbat Castle is a popular tourist attraction for people who visit Oman, particularly during the regular tourism periods of the southern region, which vary from the rest of the country.

The Dhofar Municipality said about Mirbat Castle, “Mirbat is a tourist attraction for its fascinating archaeological sites such as Mirbat Castle.

The castle is distinguishable by its Omani style of architecture. While Mirbat castle and its ancient complex is distinguishable by Islamic architecture, the tourists can also find here the tombs and graves of scholars.”
