Nizwa is one of the largest cities in Oman, it has a wealth of cultural and ancient landmarks, most prominent is Nizwa fort built over a period of 12 years and located in the city centre. The fort is surrounded by ancient traditional souks (markets) where locals trade in traditional as well as imported merchandise, from vegetables to jewellery.

Nizwa is an oasis, in the enclosed by a series of mountains upon which the famous green mountain (al Jabal al Akhdar) lies.

Nizwa is a centre for date growing and packing, and the market place for the Dhakliya area. In the early 1950s the large round tower of the ancient Fort built around 400 years ago in the centre of the town was bombed and rocketed by the British Royal Air Force who were called in to assist the then reigning Sultan, Said bin Taymour in suppressing a revolt by tribal leaders in the interior, which was in reality a struggle for shares in the newly discovered oil wealth.

Nizwa has become a more modern city under the reign of Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said with roads and communications, a substantial hospital, schools, and the Training academy for the Royal Oman Police(ROP) all being established over the past thirty years.

There are now three good hotels and tourism is promoted in the area, which has some outstanding mountain scenery close by.
