- Bahla FortMember ofLocal CultureAdventure TravelersFirst to ReviewOct 25, 2013
Amongst Omanis, Bahla is famous for its djinn i.e., genies and Bahla Fort is like Times Central as far as genie hangouts are concerned. Seems the local djinn don't take too kindly to the good intentions of the teams trying to reconstruct the north wall of the castle. Every time a new stone is put in place, it's mysteriously back on the ground the next day. Small wonder there's no official opening date for this UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you befriend one of the creepy custodians, however, they just might let have a peek, insh'Allah (God willing).
