Mirbat harbor

Mirbat harbor


The fort in Mirbat was recently partially destroyed in a storm and is currently undergoing restoration. The dhow in front is a typical sailing vessel from the region used for fishing, and although Omani-owned, such craft are now almost universally manned either by Bengalis, Bangladeshis or Pakistanis.
