This venerable village at the foot of the Hajar Mountains is one of the oldest in Oman, and it is interesting for its wonderfully well-preserved row of two- and three-storey mudbrick houses built in the Yemeni style. There are many abandoned houses in the upper parts of the village, which make for an atmospheric stroll.
To reach the old part of town, follow the main road, past the turning for Misfat. The road skirts uphill above the old buildings until it reaches a tree-filled roundabout. Park near the large, square mud building and explore the town and plantation on foot.
