Zubarah

An ancient fort, and a museum. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2013 - situated just 100 km west of Doha lies the town of Al Zubarah, an important archaeological site famous for its old fort. This fort-turned-museum was constructed in 1938 during the reign of Sheikh Abdullah Bin Jassim Al-Thani and was erected on the ruins of a neighbouring fort. The fort itself is square-shaped with circular towers in three of its corners and a rectangular tower in the fourth. With high, thick walls, this fort also served as a coast-guard station and, until the mid-1980s, was used by the military. The nearby archaeological site of the town appears to be closed.

Al Khor

Qatar
Perched on the eastern coast of the Qatari peninsula, Al-Khor is a major settlement just north of Doha. The city is far older than Doha, but much smaller. It used to be the center of the now non-existent pearl trading industry, so now the city is undergoing renovation.
