There are numerous exhibitions to see inside the 17th-century edifice, which reveal the rich history and past of the building.


Jebel Akhdar

The majority of this mountain is composed of desert and limestone.

This is among the most popular tourist destinations in this country, and it is particularly well-known for its orchards, walnut orchards, and date plantations. You will, without a certain, have a wonderful time out over here!
