Sohar is the capital and largest city of the Al Batinah North Governorate in the Sultanate of Oman. An ancient capital of the country that once served as an important Islamic port town, Sohar has also been credited as the mythical birthplace of Sinbad the Sailor.
According to the 2010 census, Sohar's population was 140,006, making it Oman's fifth most-populated settlement. The development of the Sohar Industrial Port during the 2000s has transformed it into a major Omani industrial hub.
