Sunaysilah fort interior battlements

This fort now has an enviable hilltop location by the sea, in centuries past it was the city's first line of defense against sea-borne attack. The four corner towers were fitted with slits for cannon. Inside the courtyard is a typical example of Omani-style rooftop crenellation.
