#1: General view towards East and the DCP 24N 57E

(visited by Ajay Sikri, Sangeeta Sikri, Aayush Sikri and Aastha Sikri)

02-Apr-2010 -- We covered this DCP while on our way from Dubayy to Masqaṭ. The approach to the spot is quite easy, though a "Do Not Enter" sign is posted at the approach from the country road.

This DCP is located in a wooded area and there appears to be no change at the spot from what was reported in the earlier visits. Even the stones accumulated by the earlier visitors were lying intact.

We clicked the customary pictures and resumed our journey. On the way back to the highway number 1, we came across ruins of some old castle.
