  • The Doha Fort is currently neglected, it is surrounded by multi-storey construction site, everything looks pretty desolate and run-down of the Fort can be guessed that it could look very nice.

  • Located near the Museum of Islamic art? It is. Is currently under construction. Is developing as a tourist destination, no sights of Doha in situations like these places has become spot.

  • I stopped by because it had the time in transit. Came in feeling lucky about information and under renovation and the time 18:30 was so vacant, but was closed as expected. People are walking around almost in contrast to the bustling Souk waqif, stayed there quietly.
