Mirbat的城堡以傳統的阿曼防禦工事風格所建造，這與此地區的多數典型建築不同。農業是一項季節性的活動，主要在Tawi A'teer 地區， 主要農作物有豆子、芒果、黃瓜和玉米。 Marbat擁有天然的水泉、石窟及洞穴。
Mirbat is on the central strip of the Dhofar coast and its name is believed to have come from marabat al khail (lit. place where horses are tied up). Mirbat was famed for breeding Arabian horses which were exported, along with frankincense, to India and East Africa. It has a spectacular landscape, from its coastline to the impressive peaks of Jebel Samhan, the highest of which stands at 4754ft.
The Citadel of Mirbat was built in the traditional Omani style of defensive architecture, which is atypical of many of the structures built in the area. Agriculture is a seasonal activity here, mainly confined to the Tawi A'teer region. Beans, mangoes, cucumbers and corn are the main crops. Marbat is rich in natural springs, caves and grottos.
