I welcome you all to my blog.This article is about my trip to Salalah in Oman.Salalah is located in the south of Sultanate of Oman bordering Yemen.Salalah is a well known tourist spot in the Gulf.It is Called “Gulf Kashmir”.Everyone knows Kashmir and it’s a part of India.I am an Indian and I started my trip from the southernmost tip of India called Kanyakumari.Of Course,India starts from Kashmir and ends at Kanyakumari.I boarded a flight from Trivandrum to Muscat and landed at the Muscat Airport at about 6:20 A.M. I was very much excited to land on Muscat because it was my first international trip.My friend took me and I stayed at my brothers home at Ibri.
At midnight,I boarded a bus from Ibri and reached Salalah the next morning.The journey was amazing as I did not feel any jerks.Oman roads were fantastic when compared to Indian roads.I took a room and had a bath and went to see Prophet Ayub A.S. tomb and prayed there and drank the water from the fountain which has miraculous medical Properties.The water was very cold and sweet and I enjoyed it.This fountain is mentioned in the Holy Quran and in the Bible as Job’s fountain.
Next I went to Prophet Imran A.S. tomb and prayed there.This site is important for Muslims,Jews as well as Christians.Jews beleive that it was Prophet Moosa A.S. father and Christians beleive that it was Mariam A.S. father. The tomb was very lengthy about 30 feet.
Next I went to Marneef cave which is along the beach side.Oman is famous for Jinns or Ghosts.Here you can see ghosts coming and talking with us.It was a thrilling experience.Jinns eyes were very yellow with which we can distinguish Jinns or Ghosts from the human beings.Marneef cave is a must visit for ghost lovers.
Next I went to a place called Mirbat which is a old port which is famous for fishing.This city was named after Mirbat who is a descendent of Prophet Mohamed(PBUH).His tomb is also there.
I went to the gravity point which is also a must visit for travellers.The driver put the car to Neutral and without putting any gear it automatically moved upwards without any acceleration and went a long distance.
Salalah Museum was very good.Prophet Mohamed(PBUH) handwritten letter was kept there.We can see Oman’s heritage there.We can see lot of forts there in Oman.Oman scents were very famous.Salalah is snowy during season period and very dry during Off-season period.Salalah is similar to kerala in many sense.We can see lot of Coconut trees and lot of keralites particularly from Calicat there.
Also you can see Prophet Salih A.S. and Prophet Hud A.S. tombs there at Salalah.You can also see the tomb of Cheraman Peruman,the Hindu king who converted to Islam during Prophet’s period.He was the first Indian converted to Islam.He saw the moon splitted by Prophet Mohamed(PBUH) and went from India to Saudi Arabia and converted to Islam there and while coming back,he stayed at Salalah and died there.
Also you can see Gog and Magog also known as Yajuj,Majuj there.Oman’s historical name was Majan and they refer to Majuj and Yemenis are Yajuj.Majans had historical links with chinese and Mongolians were also called Majuj.You can see Dhulqarnain wall while going from Salalah to Yemen by road.You can see the mountains filled with Copper and inside with Iron.It was an amazing ride to the hills.
Any article about Oman should include Jinns or Ghosts and any reference to Jinns should include Bahla which is a old city near Ibri.It is the birth place of Jinns or Ghosts.You can definitely see ghosts in Bahla and in Nizwa fort.You can see Jinns praying at Hijar mosque in Bahla.Ganapathy has elephant’s head and man’s body.Likewise you can see Jinns with human body and donkey legs there.Jinns noses are like skull,their eyes are very very yellow and their legs are like donkey legs.
There is a place around the Yemen border where you can see sea on one side and mountains on other side.There one tree is there in the mountain.If you clap hands,Water will drop from the root of the tree.If you clap fast,water will fall fast and if you stop clapping,water dropping will stop.
People who want adventure in their lives can visit Oman and enjoy a lot.Braveness is essential.You can definitely see or feel about some ghosts roaming.Muscat and Salalah are modern cities,Muscat is the capital of Oman and it has lot of beaches.You can enjoy modern life there.Sultan Qaboos Mosque is known for it’s architecture.I came back to Seeb Airport and took Oman Air and reached Trivandrum and back to Kanyakumari.Oman tour is just like Bermuda cruise and it is very worthy.Book the tickets and enjoy Oman.
