Al Koot fort

Al Koot Fort was built in the Ottoman period, in 1880, when Doha was little more than a village. At the time this would have been at the outskirts of the town. The Ottomans had been welcomed by Sheikh Qassim, although by the end of the century they were at war together: see The Rise of the Qatar Ruling Family for details. The fort is currently shut to visitors.
