The sites located in the area measuring 40x60 metre may be included in the World Heritage list. The sites in the Saluth area had been lying vacant for more than 1,000 years, the survey pointed out. It also indicated that the Saluth area was one of the most inhabited seaside areas in Oman since 3000 BCE. One of the best buildings found in the survey was a tower in the grave area. The survey revealed that the inhabited areas were surrounded by strong walls.
