Nizwa is located approximately 170km south-west of Muscat and is Oman’s second most popular tourist destination. Much of Arabia’s handicraft industries are based in Nizwa, including production of the traditional khanjar daggers still worn by everyone from police to immigration agents and hotel doormen. Nizwa Fort is a large complex of buildings that has recently been restored to the grandeur it originally had when built in the mid-17th century by a local religious leader. The fort was used for defence, as a palace and as a prison.
