    oman in the past and present

    Post  rose on Fri Jul 23, 2010 2:27 am



    Of the Imam Ahmed bin Said, founder of Oman’s present day ruling family’ took Sohar as the first city of Oman, from which he ruled as Wali before becoming Imam, Rostaq was at this time another of Oman’s important cities.
    It was Hamad Said, however, grandson of the Imam Ahmed bin Said Al bousaidi and ruler of Oman between 1779 and 1792, who moved the capital from Rostaq to Muscat. Since that time Muscat has not been contested as capital and foremost city of Oman.

    Here is Muscat in 1970 – no more than half a mile along its coastal length, set between the twin forts of Al Mirani and Jalali. It is as a city bewitched, inert within the enclosure of its massive wall, the gates of which close on all inside at sundown immediately the cannon sounds its wretched report; for this announces the closure of the gates and warns all who approach them of death by gunfire it they do not come bearing aloft a lamp to clearly show their faces and establish their identity.



    Sultan Qaboos Port


    This port was opened in 1974 in implementation of Royal Decree issued by His Majesty Sultan Qaboos calling for the construction of a modern port capable of handling two million tones of goods annually.



    Seeb International Airport


    Seeb International Airport is an immediate testimony to the progress made by the Sultan and a crucial communication link with the outside world. It has undergone spectacular development and refurbishment over the past two years when work was completed on the new cargo terminal. This terminal, which handles both inbound and outbound freight, has a storage capacity of around one hundred thousand tones of goods, in the terminal itself and in the open storage area adjacent to the building.



    tql_drawBottom(); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-174705-4']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js'; (document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0] || document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0]).appendChild(ga); })();
