"Protecting the healing waters" Rustaq by DSwede
Rustaq Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 13 photos
Rustaq Fort was built in 1711. With walls measuring nearly 3m thick, it is almost an impenetrable fortress. In the days of Imam Nasir bin Murshid al Ya'arubi, Rustaq even served as the capital of Oman.
Built above the green oasis and wadi's, Rustaq fort majestically protects the life giving waters. The hot water of these springs and sulfur content is reported as being extremely therapeutic, especially for skin diseases.
- Pros:The old crumbling building facades are accessible by foot for an up-close look.
- Cons:Transportation options to get here are rather limited, best bring your own.
- In a nutshell:Good for a day's excursion to appreciate how water has written the history of the area.
