Muscat is a unique port city in Oman, rich in its history and diverse in its culture. Three small towns, each with their own distinct identities and strengths, merged to form this “walled city. The original town of Muscat was home to royal palaces, while neighboring Mutrah was a small fishing village. The third town, Ruwi, would become a diplomatic and commercial hub if the newly merged city. Together they formed a thriving port, Oman, that today still retains its senses of heritage and its prominence.
