SUNDAY POST : Architecture

Qal’at al-Bahrain also known as the Fort of Bahrain

is an archaeological site in the Bahrain desert.

Built by various occupants throughout the years, the first fort being built over 3000 years ago…

I present some desert architecture of the Middle East, built throughout the millennium.

    • I know, right! That is exactly what I do when I visit places like this – I imagine myself in the certain *time* and how the people were dressed and lived and everything. This is what travel is to me. – Thank you for coming by.
