|PS035 On-going restoration of the well-visited Sohar Fort.|
Sohar Fort is located just a stone's throw away from the southern end of Sohar Corniche. It served as a defensive bastion and as lookout point in earlier days. During the Al Busaid Dynasty, it was used as an administration centre and also as seat of judicial authority. In 1993, Sohar Fort was converted as Sohar Fort Museum. Its operation, however, was suspended in 2007 as renovation started to take place. As of now, there is no news yet as to when it will resume operation.
