History and symbols of the Sultanate of Oman

Located in the south-east of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman was in ancient times a major platform for the production and export of incense. It was also one of the main provinces of the Persian Empire (together with Mesopotamia, Egypt, Persia and India) and the center of its commercial activity. The sea-silk route followed its shores in the Arabian Sea.

The country is crossed by the Hajar mountains chain (stone mountains in Arabic) with the highest point being the Jabal Shams (mountain of the sun) at 3,009 meters of altitude.

Omani culture offers a diverse mix (Arabic, Baluch, Asian and African) and is known for its exceptional hospitality. The Sultanate of Oman is the 4th safest country in the world according to the World Economic Forum.
