  • 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..
  • Really interesting place. Visit it by the way to Fujairah
  • Unfortunately the fort was locked up when I was there so I was unable to visit inside but very interesting to see the local water management systems
  • I dont know why people come here to see this🤔 in the middle of no where!!
