    Travel video about destination Jabrin in Oman.The mighty 17th
    century Jabrin Fort is one of the most beautiful castles of its kind
    in the Sultanat of Oman. The owner of this splendid building, that
    is more like a palace than a fort, was noble scholar, Imam Bilarab
    Bin Sultan, who in 1670 moved his government headquarters to Jabrin.
    The interior of the castle with its furnishings and every day
    objects gives a strong impression of the way of life of its former
    occupants during this historic epoch.Most of the wooden ceilings,
    numerous vaults and arches are adorned with artistic calligraphy,
    verses from the Koran and floral motifs. In addition to the splendid
    furnishings of its interior, the castle contains hidden corridors
    and secret rooms in which it was possible to eavesdrop on private
    conversations, precautionary measures that were taken due to
    increasing tension between Bilarab and his brother, Saif Bin
    Sultan.With Jabrins two diagonal towers, Bilarab had created a
    monument which for many years to come would be a unique example of
    Osmanic fortress architecture and one that served as a model for
    many more of the countrys fortifications.
