Muscat is an ancient port city, while Mutrah is rather a residential part with cheaper hotels and a very popular market. Ruwi is a business zone of the city, distinctive with modern buildings. The dominating feature of the city are three forts.The first one is the Mutrah fort, built on the top of the hill which rises above the city. The other two forts - Al Jalali and Mirami - are at the entrance to the city. The two forts are used by the police and by the army so there is no public access. The most popular monuments in the city are the Ali Mosque and the New Mosque, the Sultan Qabuse Palace, the Representative Palace with beautiful gardens.
