Al Jahili Fort

average rating is 4.4 out of 5

Al-Jahili Fort (Arabic: قَلْعَة ٱلْجَاهِلِي, romanized: Qalʿat al-Jāhilī) is a fort in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates. The fort was established in 1891 around Al-Jahili Oasis for the protection of palm farmers. Later it was seized by the former Omani coastal scout for its operation to protect the mountain lanes and to preserve the inter-tribal peace. The fort was mentioned and recorded by several historical figures. Percy Cox, in his tour to Al Ain in 1905, reportedly visited the Al Jahili region. In 1906, J. G. Lorimer mentioned that the fort was constructed under the rule of Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.

The fort is located on the southern part of the city of Al Ain close to Al Ain Castle Museum. It is on the strategic location where exist water sources and agricultural land.
