A visitor’s delight, overlooking the whole of Muttrah and the Arabian Sea stretching as far as telescopic view covers, Muttrah Fort also known as Koot Muttrah has played a pivotal role in the nation’s past. It was built by the Portuguese in their period of supremacy as a defense technique against the rampaging Ottoman army. The main purpose of the fort was for the military but in many opportunities was also used as a detention centre for prisoners.
