We Love Oman: Date palms of Nozouh village

Located in the Wadi Bani Hinai in the Wilayat of Rustaq in the Governorate of South Al Batinah, the Nozouh village is famous for its plantations of various types of date palms, seasonal crops, oats, wheat, barleys, legumes and fruits. Nozouh village is situated at a strategic location on the road connecting Wadi Bani Ghafir and the Niyabat of Al Houqain. It is also connected to the Wilayat of Rustaq and the Wilayat of Suwaiq.

 It is about 30 km from the centre of the Wilayat of Rustaq. The village gained great importance due to its ancient archaeological discoveries that date back to 3000 BC. Archaeological tombs were discovered on the road leading to the Niyabat of Al Houqain. The history of these tombs dates back to the period before Islam.

Ancient archaeological inscriptions were also discovered and those concerned believe that they might be related to the inscriptions found in Wadi A’Sahtan. These inscriptions date back to 3000 BC, whereas some of them date to 1000 BC. Such inscriptions are scattered across different places in the village. They represent littering and drawings that depict the events and environment experienced at that time.
