Ar Rustaq介紹- Ar Rustaq Description


位於馬斯開特以東車程約2小時之處,此處有阿曼境內最著名的溫泉,為一自然湧出溫泉,湧出口位於一清真寺旁,水溫約攝氏45度,據說對風濕、關節炎及皮膚病具有療效。傍晚時分可見住在附近村落內的婦女相偕到溫泉湧出口汲取飲用水順便閒話家常,離湧出口不遠處蓋了12間公共浴室以供到清真寺參拜的教徒及遊客洗淨手足,並且有一條溫泉專用的溝渠將溫泉引入村內以供洗滌及灌溉之用。

Ar Rustaq was once the capital of Oman, during the era of Imam Nasir bin Murshid al Ya'arubi. Rustaq fort, built four centuries prior to the dawn of Islam in Oman, is an imposing structure built on three levels, containing separate houses, an armoury, a mosque and four towers. The tallest tower stands over 18.5m high and has a diameter of 6m. Hazm Fort is an outstanding example of Omani Islamic architecture and was built in 1711AD. The fort's roof is built on columns, and contains no wooden supports. Its walls can withstand great impact, being no less than 3m thick.
Rustaq is an area of healing, warm springs, the most notable being Ain al Kasafa. Its water runs at 45degC and is regarded as a cure for rheumatism and skin diseases due to its sulphur content. There are three popular wadis to visit: Wadi Bani Ghafar; Wadi al Sahtan and Wadi Bani Auf. In addition, the mountains are pitted with caves such as Al Sanaqha Cave with its own subterranean springs. One of the main occupations in Rustaq is beekeeping. Pure Omani honey is a most sought-after commodity and is of the highest quality. Fruits such as pomegranates, apricots, plums and grapes are grown on the foothills of Jebel al Akhdar and brought to Rustaq for sale.
