Zubarah fort: a historic Qatari military fortress built under the oversight of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani in 1938
Thaqab fort: Also known as Qal’at al Thaqab, dates to the 19th century but archaeological evidence suggests that the Thaqab village itself may have been inhabited since the 10th century.
Al Arish: One of the largest abandoned villages once inhabited by fisherman and pearl drivers off the coast of Ash Shamal.
Al Ruwais historical mosque: Initially built around the 17th century, Ruwais Mosque was reconstructed in the 1940s. After being struck by lightning in 1970, the minaret wall was reconstructed using seashell brick. As a result of the mosque’s worsening exterior condition, the Qatar Museums Authority launched a restoration project in 2014.
