Corner View - Traditional Architecture




The photos show three examples of traditional Omani architecture. The first is the onion-domed tomb of Bin Ali, the second is of wooden-fronted merchants' houses on the harbourside at Muscat while the third is an adobe house at Mirbat, not far from Salalah.
