Bithnah FortOctober 15, 2011

Saturday afternoon we visited the Bithnah Fort…
which is across a wadi from the town of Al Bithnah…
and surrounded by date palm farm.
Restoration is still in process.
The restoration includes decorative stonework and woodwork.
I hope they don’t cover this wall in plaster. It is beautiful, as is.
This Mobil oil barrel probably didn’t expect to end up part of a water well.
The mountains are quite beautiful.
Al Bithnah is between Fujairah and Masafi. The fort can be seen from the highway. It is a short drive with good signage, BUT the road is not paved and goes through the wadi. We made it with our compact car, but had to drive very carefully because it is very rough roadway.
