  • No proper road to go there. Its in the middle of no where. Main gate was open with a guard who does not bother to come out of his room. Fort gates are closed. You cant get in to see but you can take couple of photos from outside..
  • You will not find anyone other than yourself there. No security guard even.
  • It's ok kind of place
  • Really interesting place. Visit it by the way to Fujairah
  • Superb!
