Wakrah Fort restoration

The original fort was constructed by Sheikh Abdurahman bin Jassim, the ruler of Al Wakrah in the year 1906. This original construction was then enveloped by a larger fort structure constructed around the year 1956. The foundations of the old fort have been excavated by an archaeological team. This development was constructed by Sheikh Muhammad bin Jassim bin Muhammad prior to the First World War and there is an obvious connection to the architecture of the Nejd.

Development of Umm Slal Mohammed restoration and development

Umm Salal Mohammed stands on the old North Road 20 Kilometers from Doha. The area is named after its founder. The old village was surrounded by a wide wall of stone and mud that took many years to finish. Around 1910, the founder of the village, Sheikh Mohamed Bin Jassim Bin Thani Al Thani, built a fortified residence that is still standing. Umm Slal Mohammad is considered one of the loveliest places in Qatar; it has many farms and a big lake that stores water for several months after the rainy season.

Features:
• Resort 5 stars.
• Historical Plaza.
• Pond.
• Restaurant.
• Coffee Shop.
• Park.
• Accommodation.

WOW! That is exactly what I dreamed of! Umm Slal Mohammed is simply rubbish now! We have so many heritage buildings there and they all belong to the founders of this great nation, yet it is so neglected. Good JOB!

Also on the left before entering al-khor there is a big land being prepared for something. Possibly the location of Al-bayt stadium.

^^ It is way bigger, wider and more spacious than Souq Waqif.

Not to mention sea view and board walk.

They said, I said, you said and everyone says whatever they wish :lol: . Usually you shouldnt believe words right away.

I dont understand the houses concept, what do you mean ? As in residential ? Because i fail to see how this would work...

^^ they as in the private engineering office, I think I heard that they only have 50 shops for rent. It might be phase one or maybe not.
They build the houses because the project actually was about rebuilding the old parts of wakra, including the houses as per the images they have from the 70s or before. there was a documentary about it in Qatar TV last year. Great coverage Alrayyan :) thanks
