Bahla contains Bahla Fort, a recently restored building which has been listed by UNESCO on its list of World Heritage and Culture Sites. The wilayat is surrounded by a 15km wall. Also in the area is the imposing Jibreen Fort, built by Imam Bal'arb bin Sultan bin Saif Al Ya'rubi. Bahla's most famous industry is pottery making. Bahla pots are found in homes throughout the Sultanate and are a favourite souvenir with tourists. The pots are still made in the traditional manner. Intricate designs, some of which have been passed on through the generations and have local significance, are etched into the necks and bodies of these pots.
