“Using Our Coconuts” But Still “Going Bananas” in Salalah!!!

The Beaches of Salalah

Wise Men from OMAN?! The Khor Rori Frankincense Trail Site

It is well known that the wise men coming to see the LORD Jesus just after his birth brought gold, frankincense and myrh. Not much else is known about them. Some speculate that they came from Persia as Daniel would have left them some knowledge of the prophecies concerning the coming messiah. There are some who strongly believe that at least some of the wise men were from Oman. Frankincense is produced from the resin of the boswelia tree and Oman was most famous for exporting this over the centuries. Interesting! Some of the earliest worshippers of our LORD might have been Omani!!!

The coral can be razor-sharp and you REALLY do have to be careful!

One thing I love about Salalah-Camels are everywhere!

The Village of Mirbat
