Monday Window: 12/12/16

On the way back to Dubai from my recent Oman road trip, we passed through the old city of Bahla, in the Ad Dakhiliyah region of Oman on the route back to the border crossing at Al Ain in the UAE. 

Bahla  is a UNESCO World Heritage Site town, located 40 km away from Nizwa, and about 200 km from Oman’s capital Muscat, it is notable as the home of one of the oldest fortresses in the country, the 13th century Bahla Fort and the town is famous for it’s pottery.

Arriving in the hours before sunset, the atmospherics were set for the exploration around the outside of the fort and the crumbling old town.
