Nizwa is one of the oldest cities in Oman and it was the capital and the center for trade, religion, education, and art center in Oman for so many years. Its Jama’ (grand mosque) was formerly a center for Islamic learning. Nizwa acquired its importance because it has been an important meeting point at the base of the Western Hajar Mountains.

The main bulk of the fort took about 12 years to complete and was built above an underground stream. The fort is a reminder of the town's significance through turbulent periods in Oman's long history.
