Welcome to Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace

Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace

Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace is the working office for Sultan Qaboos. Built in 1972, it is flanked on each side by the ancient Al Jalali and Al Mirani Forts making an impressive and well-fortified greeting to ships entering Muscat's harbour. Tourists are not allowed inside the classically styled building for obvious security reasons, but it remains a popular area to walk around and to photograph.
