The Al Jalali Fort, also known as Ash Sharqiya Fort, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century is a massive structure in Muscat, Oman. Interestingly it once used to be a prison which has been converted to a heritage private museum. Being located on the harbor, the Al Jalali Fort offers a beautiful to the entire city of Muscat. The only entrance to this place is through a steep flight of stairs in the front.
During specific palace military occasions, bagpipers are seen to put up a show at the Al Jajali Fort battlements with the Royal Dhow and Yacht being sailed into the harbor with complete grandiosity. The lights from the fire-works makes the mighty fortress come alive and look gorgeous on such nights. The entry to this fort is strictly by permit only.
