Jabreen Castle is located in Bahla, Oman and dates back to the year 1670. The Imam in charge of building this castle is said to be buried to the left of the entrance. This castle has been meticulously restored and is now a great window into the history of the Sultanate. This shot was taken in the main entryway of the castle, looking up.
