Al Mirani fort is just one of the many forts dotted around the Muscat coastline. You cannot go into them but can definitely walk up to see them and the vantage point they have over the sea.
The forts are actually a reminent of the Portuguese rule of Oman in the 16th Century. Each fort was designed using complicated architecture and engineering to ensure maximum protection in turbulent times.
They’re an impressive piece of living history!
