Al Alam Palace Tavel Guide
With a history of over 200 years, Al Alam Palace was built by Imam Sultan bin Ahmed the 7th direct grandfather of the current Sultan. The existing palace was rebuilt as a royal residence in 1972. Al Alam Palace has a facade of gold and blue. It is surrounded by the Mirani and Jalali Forts built in the 16th century by the Portuguese. Visitors are forbidden inside the palace, despite the fact that His Majesty normally lives elsewhere in Oman. But the palace remains a popular area to walk next to and take photos.
