Oman – Land of Frankincense

Oman – Land of Frankincense

Once upon a time it was weighed up in gold. Now frankincense is a sought-after souvenir.

The Three Kings knew the right thing to do. At least Balthazar did. For it was he who brought Baby Jesus a gift of frankincense to his manger in Bethlehem. In Oman the resin continues to play an important role. At the turn of the millennium UNESCO declared Oman the ’Land of Frankincense’ and a World Cultural Heritage Site.
