Lies north of Qatar, 57km north of Doha. Until the early
1940s of the past century the town used to be a thriving
port and pearl fishing center. Despite that other trades
have started to replace those trades, the town teems with
relics that testify to the town's venerable history. Its
fine mosques, its museum that houses valuable archeological
pieces and acquisitions and its historical towers are some
examples of those relics.
