Should be visited if you're doing a tour of the peninsula, but don't make it your only destination for the day. Interesting architecture therefore historically important in a place where most things are knocked down after a few years.

Open around the year don't miss it out if you are in qatar. It is a restoration part of the tower yet it is a living history.

Few months ago, I went for Barzan Tower, hardly struggled to get the location and find the place. A big shock to find that it was closed for renovation. Now it is more than 6 months and still the same reason.

I'm being generous when I give an average rating, because the day I went at 11 AM on a Friday it was closed. It might have been a Ramadan thing, but for something that's sold as a tourist attraction, it should have been open. Anyway,...More
