There is no signage for this fort. This fort had a nice little courtyard and only one tower. Under the tower are two rooms. Take the steps up to the tower but watch out for the hole. This is one of the six forts in...More

The fort makes for an interesting 30 min stop en route giving an impression of the yesteryears of Bedouin life. The Liwa desert doesn’t offer many sightseeing opportunities, nor did I manage to find very much about the history of this fort. The place looks...More

On the pictures it appeared as a big castle, but when you go there, you will realize it is a small fortress - pretty amazing, but not much to see. It is a standalone building, no restaurant or any other tourist supporting facilities.

A very small little fort. Al Ain etc have much better examples but one can go and take a quick look. Surrounded by rather delapidated houses and we had small boys throw stones at us. Not worth it.

Very fast visit, only 10 minutes. I almost crushed a baby just born bird dropped from the nest as we were the only visitors there and many birds went away as soon we step inside. Lucky, we brought him back the Liwa hotel (5 minutes)...More

on the images was quite big, but in live it is a small fort. Nothing inside, just to see how it is built

We've been there following trip advisor and there is actually nothing to see but a very small renovated tower. It take 120 seconds to go inside, take the 3 pictures and go out. Strange.......

I found this fort via a UAE Off-Road Book. It was right off E90, down a short road. It appeared to be open all the time, and had some nice views of the dunes. You can just walk inside, and climb up to the top...More
