ABU DHABI, May 31 (KUNA) — Al-Maqta Fort and Watchtower is one of the oldest and most beautiful historic monuments in the Emirati capital of Abu Dhabi, dating back to over 200 years.
The fort was used to guard the waterside entrance of Abu Dhabi in the old days, warning citizens against any upcoming danger.
Due to its high cultural value, the Fort has gone under several renovations in the past few years, and it can be seen when driving near Al-Maqta Bridge. (end)
