Al Ain - Jahili Fort

One of the most interesting sight in Al Ain is the 100 year (1898) old Jahili Fort. It's architecture is so beautiful, that I bring an entire series of pictures from it here. Amazingly I had the entire place to myself. Apparently not many tourists make it all the way out to Al Ain.

Me in front of the inner fort. Surrounding this entire area and the fort is an outer wall.

The small gate into the inner fort. Notice the beautiful arabic inscriptions above the door.

The main gate leading inside the outer wall.

The round, multi-storey corner tower situated by the outside wall.
