Port city of Oman.
Originally a fishing village, after the sixteenth century Matrah became the hub of Oman's domestic commerce and home of a cosmopolitan merchant community. Today the site of Oman's largest port, Matrah lies adjacent to Muscat, the sultanate's capital. It is essentially being absorbed into the burgeoning capital urban complex.
