Maragha Castle

Maragha Castle lies in a quiet village of the same name, in the Al Batinah South Governorate in Oman.

Other than its name I don't know anything about Maragha Castle. If you know anything; please mail me.

It looks to me as if the castle was first built as a mudbrick fortification and that at a later date the gate building was built and the towers were provided with an extra shell built out of mud and rocks. It has a square ground plan with ruins of 2 round corner towers on opposite corners. Anything that may have stood on the other 2 corners has disappeared. The castle is now slowly crumbling away.

At present the ruin of Maragha Castle is freely accessible. I like the ruin a lot. Mostly because the combination of different methods of construction.
