Chapter Summary

This section of Historical Muscat: An Illustrated Guide and Gazetteer presents a list of Gazetteer of place names in Muscat and its vicinity. Some of the names include: ʿAdayy, Wadi, ʿAjam, Al Bu Saʿid, Shujayʿi, Ward Muhammad, and Zar, Shurjat al-. The book is an attempt to define and explain the historical environment that determined the significance and design of Oman's capital city Muscat, its twin city Matrah, and their environs prior to 1970. It examines how the development of the Muscat conurbation since 1970 has transcended the historical boundaries of the existing settlements and how the process of development has proceeded largely without any consideration of the impact on Muscat's tangible or remembered history.

Keywords: ʿAjam; Al Bu Saʿid; Muscat conurbation
