Lion’s Jaws Gate

It is a rock formation in the form of a lion’s head near the Musandam Peninsula and is named because of the two rock masses that look like an open lion’s jaw.

Traders and sailors used to consider entering through this gate a security measure that shielded them from storms and ocean currents that form at the meeting point of the Sea of Oman with the Arabian Gulf and Indian Ocean.
