It’s a building but not letting anyone in. Must be under construction. There is not many tourist attraction in Doha city, so hope it opens soon (or at least signpost when it will be opening and what they are doing)

This is located very close to Souq Waqif. The don't allow people inside. All you can do is to take a photograph from the outside. Maybe if you are a good photographer, you can click a nice photograph against the night sky.

Don't waste too much time looking for this, if you go to souq waqif you won't miss this or the camel pen and you can only see it from the outside! Definitely do not waste your money with a city tour as you don't need...More

This is a pretty fort but you can only see the exterior of it. Certainly worth walking around it though and snapping a pic.

This fort isn't very impressive from the outside and there was no access to the inside when I was there.

Its next to Souq Wakif so its easy to find but it’s really just a building you can check from outside so nothing special.

I happened to be driving one day and found this place quite by accident, if you are a history buff it is a great spot to stop and take pictures.

I went here during the day and was disappointed. Maybe at night when it is lit up it could be good?!? It was also closed and I couldn’t actually get inside the
