Tharmad Castle

Tharmad Castle lies in the town of the same name, in the Al Batinah South Governorate in Oman.

Tharmad Castle has a square ground plan with round towers at 3 of its corners. A bit off-set from the 4th corner is a rectangular tower. There is a recessed square gate tower with a bent entrance. There are no structures inside the castle, besides the mentioned towers. The rectangular tower holds an Arabic date press. All-in-all the inside of the castle reminds me of a caravanserai.

I wasn't able to find any historical information about Tharmad Castle. If you know anything, please mail me.

At present Tharmad Castle can be visited for free during opening hours. What these hours are, I don't know. I was told that a lot of castles in Oman, if they are open for visits, open at 9 AM and close at 2.30 or 4 PM. A very nice castle.
