Al Zubarah Archaeological Site

It's always great when we receive a postcard from a country where the postcards are hard to find and even more when we cross that country out of the missing list! 

Al Zubarah Fort
This postcard arrived from Sweden sent by Merja

The Zubarah Fort was originally built by Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani in 1938 to serve as a Coast Guard station, although some utter that it was built to serve as a police station. It was later renovated into a museum to display diverse exhibits and artworks, most especially for contemporarily topical archaeological findings. - in: wikipedia
