The Jewel Of Muscat Arrives In Penang

The Jewel of Muscat is a replica of a 9th-century Omani ship, built through a joint effort by the governments of Oman and Singapore. Building of the ship began in October 2008, and the ship started to sail for Singapore on 16 February 2010. It is expected to complete the journey by June 2010.

This 9th century reconstructed wooden sailing ship traces the spice trade from Oman to China made over a thousand years ago by traders.
