Al Hazm Castle

Al Hazm Castle Map

Hazm Fort is an outstanding example of Omani Islamic architecture and was built in 1711AD by Imam Sultan bin Seif (the 2nd.) when he established Al Hazm town as a capital of Oman instead of Rustaq.
The Castle is distinctive from other Omani castle and forts because of its magnificent shapes and massive size. The fort's roof is built on columns, and contains no wooden supports. Its walls can withstand great impact, being no less than 3m thick.
It contains the tomb of its builder/Imam Sultan bin Seif (the 2nd). 
It was restored by the Ministry in 1996.
