Al Wajbah Fort

Al Rayyan
Emir's Palace
QA
8am - 1pm

Wajbah means 'meal' in Arabic, so it's quite an unusual name for a fort. It has very thick walls and is thought to be one of the oldest in the country. This is a fort to be proud of because it's where the Qatari's defeated the Ottoman forces in 1893. The fort has two large towers and there's a display of weaponry and details of the fort's history. As usual, entry is free! Now go to this great icon!
