Curated Collection

Oman The Orient Muttrah (Matrah)


The Oman is a sultanate on the Arabian peninsula on the Asian continent. This country is rich because of trading oil and incense. This collection contains impressions of the old town of Muttrah (Mutrah / Matrah) in the region of Maskat City (Muscat), the capital city of the Oman. There is a Bazaar (an Arabian Souk), the grand mosque with its blue dome and minaret, and there is an Indian temple with an artful hand painted tower, built by the Indian Hindus. Of course there is much interesting street life, including the traditional incense trading.
