A Tour of Bahla Fort

The main feature of Bahla Fort is its 7 mile long (some say 12 miles) walls which were patrolled by sentries night and day. The Fort’s internal staircases and walls were built of mud, coated with gypsum and sarooj (a traditional type of mortar) which are as hard and solid as present-day cement. UNESCO has approved Bahla Fort and Wall for inclusion in its World Heritage List.
