Once the battleground of the armies of Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani and the Ottoman Empire, Al Wajbah Fort is seen as perhaps the oldest fort built in Qatar. Visit the site of this famous battle considered by many to have preceded the beginning of the country by staying at a Doha Qatar hotel out of all other options available. Kingsgate Hotel Doha which is a popular hotel Doha possesses will serve you well on your travels in the region.
Constructed during the 19th century by al Rayyan, the fort is a classic masterpiece of the engineering feats of the olden days. Decorated with tall towers and thick walls, Al Wajbah Fort with its numerous slits proved fruitful as it provided armies with the ease of firing arrows and bullets at the approaching enemy. Visitors would also be greeted by an oasis nearby that certainly adds to the charm of arguably one of Qatar’s most charismatic structures.
