Sultan Qaboos Palace in Oman

Sultan Qaboos reign began on 23 July 1970. The official title of this country in 1970 was the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman. Oman was an isolated state having no relations with other Arab or Islamic countries and this isolation pervaded all aspects of Omanis' lives. The new dawn arrived on 23 July, 1970, by way of Sultan Qaboos bin Said's accession to the throne, a leader who bridled at the suffering of his people and whose own ancestry bore the scars of long struggle.
